Filed under
OS
Linux

When is less really more? When it's a Linux operating system designed to run containers, such as Red Hat Atomic Host, Ubuntu Snappy, or CoreOS. As developers increasingly embrace containers for building and running apps, these small footprint systems could change the operating system's long-standing role as a catch-all for historic but less-important functions, like fax servers.
