    Biggest problem with Alipine is that you can't install locals so it's only good for applications that don't need localization.
    Locales, also manpages etc have been removed from this Minimal Ubuntu. So Alpine's lack of locales is a void argument.

Definitely getting it that small makes it good for embedded stuff. Think Snaps installs on embedded platforms. And when the Linux Kernel is a Snap as well you have a full stack from kernel on up to be used as an embedded platform.
          Yea that's not how it works. In docker your base image would be used for every container. You wouldn't have 1,000 copies for 1,000 containers using the same base image. It's useful for certain constraints, and also because why not? if it works without the bloat

            On Ubuntu you can install the locals you need on alpine you can't. Your software don't come prepackapre anywhere so you will need to make adjustments anyway.
