  1. Thank you so much for posting this. It really helped grasp the concept of Linux Container. It seems this is very similar to Solaris Zones? Would that assumption be correct?

  2. LOL I'm a nerd. I watched half of this video with my right earbud in, hearing none of the audio except static. I heard a faint voice.. realizing your voiceover was only playing on the left, from the earbud hanging near my chest.

    :face palm:

  3. Awesome demonstration! I do have question if you don't mind answering. I currently have a LAMP stack setup and I want to be able to ssh to the container from the outside world. 

  4. Always use `cp -ra' when copying directories when you don't know what's in it! This will preserve symlinks and specials as well (-p only preserves permissions and timestamps).

  5. Great video, very nice explanation. BTW, what is the process name that is seen on the host which is the process that starts up the container? E.g. in VM's, you would see qemu running, etc. Thanks a lot!
