I do not like installing tools on my laptop, mainly because I do not want to get attached to my laptop.
Around 3 years ago I read Jess Frazelle’s blog article on how and why she runs all her desktop apps in docker containers, find it here https://blog.jessfraz.com/post/docker-containers-on-the-desktop/. As I am running Windows on my laptop I never really got any further than running Chrome in a container, without audio.
What I did take away though was that I am only going to install the bare minimum of stuff onto my laptop, everything that can be run in a container, will be run in a container.
