I've spent a couple of hours trying to get Docker running on my linode Ubuntu server to no avail.

A non-docker implementation would be nice.

Ubuntu might be the problem there I'm guessing. On CentOS 7 or Fedora 22/23 it takes less than 15 seconds to install to a complete, working state. Then the command line tools are very basic to work with.

I consider myself to be a person of reasonable competence and I find Docker to be confounding.

I have 30 years in IT, my friend who is a sysadmin also tried to get Docker running on my server. He gave up too.

Maybe give CentOS 7 a try? It's literally install the rpm, start the docker service, then run whatever container you want to run.
