It's not a good thing, but no worse than having developers depend on Docker without a basic understanding of the underlying OS.

i'd contend that it's much worse. One (Docker) is a piece of software, one (Amazon) is a corporation with a motivated will.

They are two different problems. One is basically the problem of copy-paste/stackoverflow developers, the other is a walled garden problem that'll make itself worse over time.

Docker is written by a corporation, and so in many senses it is an expression of their will.
