The Byte - Mirantis Acquires Docker and What this Means

Mirantis acquired Docker and split Docker Enterprise to Mirantis. Now Docker is focusing on Developer Tools, and returning to its roots supporting Open Source, and integrating with CI/CD tools

Thanks for sharing this, somehow I missed that news.
We've been using docker since its early early stages, but recently grew reluctant, mainly bc of unclear (to me) vision for the business and how it's going to support the open source community around the tool.
Hoping for the best with this move to Mirantis.

It's great news both for the Enterprise business and now the Open Source side. Some great new features are rolling out more frequently for Docker for Desktop, Docker Engine, and Docker Hub. Watch this space.
