      Ok. So look it up? https://github.com/opencontainers/runc https://github.com/kubernetes-incubator/cri-o https://github.com/flatpak/flatpak/b...oci-registry.c. rkt is adding support for it etc.

        Ok, I'll give you flatpack. But runc hasn't reached 1.0.0 and cri-o is pre-alpha. Do they really qualify as "popular" at this point?

        I think Michael simply hasn't chosen the best wording here.

          From the article I can't understand the purpose of this.. Isn't Docker supposed to handle the creation of layers when I build a container image based on Fedora image?

            This more about the process of packaging and delivering products: http://tuhrig.de/layering-of-docker-images/
            I have barely dabbled with the topic, I don't know much details.

              runc is definitely popular. So is rkt aka rocket. CoreOS uses it.

                I know rkt is popular, but as you said they're only adding support right now. runc, I didn't know about.
                Just to be clear, I know containers and OCI is where much of the exciting stuff is happening right now, but since I'm mostly on the outside, I'm just trying to figure the status quo (which will be changed in a couple of months anyway ).

                  Yes, the support is new because the spec itself is pretty new. runc is the first reference implementation. These are already being used by very large organizations to support containers.
