"Installation: we recommend that you use Docker."

what I'm supposed to see: "hey, it's a simple one-liner! Such clean install, much wow."

@JordiGH I give a talk two or three times a year on ethics and values in open source, and one of the points I try to emphasize is that you really, really need to understand what your own values and principles are, because these questions will never land in your lap with a hazmat label on them saying "ethical quandary here".
