re: Why do use docker to this..?

This is based on my experience a few years ago. I installed Latex from the default Ubuntu repo and it missed a package. Installing the missing package didn't work because it depended on a more recent version of Latex. I installed Latex with the official ISO, but there were some conflicts with the previous installation. I removed the previous installation but I forgot to remove some configuration settings. Possible it's just me, but it was not plugin and play.

Few months ago I needed Latex again and I tried one of the popular public available docker latex container. Besides waiting to download the container it only took me one minute to figure out what I wanted to do, did it and removed the container again.
