I am aware that Docker is criticized for deviating or extending the container spec and also causing some additional overhead. However
* I think, Docker is popular and might therefore be a good choice to attract more users using containers,
* I am already running apps that really exploit docker-compose extensively, i.e. if I go for LXD or nspawn I have to run both,
* I am not (yet) familiar with LXD or nspawn. Do you have any pointer on how Samba DC works with LXD?
