  • Reasons to Drop Docker for Podman
    6 projects | news.ycombinator.com | 6 Aug 2023
    I wanted to try a while ago so I downloaded Podman Desktop, but I couldn't get past the initial setup due to issues in the desktop app. I was able to reproduce this on two or three Macs, can't recall exactly.

    It has been a long-standing issue but seems as though it is on its way to resolution: https://github.com/containers/podman-desktop/issues/1633.

    I am waiting for a few months to make sure it is all sorted and will try again to see if it works then.

  • Podman Desktop 1.2 Released: Compose and Kubernetes Support

    I'm not happy with Podman Desktop's Svelte GUI.

    Antd or MUI (React) feel much more mature.

    But they are working on it.

    I don't know if that's really a core difference from podman. Assuming I track your meaning Podman has GUI management as well and it can be made to integrate with system and can produce Kubernetes manifests from the pods you define locally.

    > docker desktop is pretty dead now that it's got restrictive licensing etc...

    It would probably be nice to hear more about why you think this is! I've certainly heard of some having to move away from Docker Desktop.

    However, at the scale where you need a license (250 employees or 10 million $ in annual revenue) it's not quite as big of an issue, especially at their current pricing per seat: https://www.docker.com/pricing/

    > stick to standard open source tools like Colima etc...

    Sticking to open source is a great idea!

    I think mentioning that Colima runs on macOS and Linux only at the moment is also a good idea: https://github.com/abiosoft/colima

    A large market share of the Docker Desktop installs are Windows in particular (since it's "the one way" how most install Docker nowadays, as opposed to not really needing a GUI or the supporting tools on Linux).

    In another comment I mentioned Podman Desktop as a mostly viable alternative: https://github.com/containers/podman-desktop

    Then there's also Rancher Desktop as well: https://github.com/rancher-sandbox/rancher-desktop

    Regardless, it's nice to see reputable orgs behind the open source projects as well, which gives a bit more credence to their chances of surviving for the years to come.
