> 1) Don't use Twitter for having long conversations and public fights. Just don't. No good will come out of it.

I encourage you to read the twitter exchange I linked to. It predates all of this, and is not at all a fight. On the contrary it is a constructive exchange and I am using it to assert Docker's philosophy in a positive way

> Vis-a-vis "just compete!". How do you see this "competing" happening without an announcement like this. "We have created X container thingy"? Ok, isn't it smart to compare to an existing container "thingy" right of the bat?

Surely it's possible to launch a competing tool without resorting to a press campaign like this one: http://techcrunch.com/2014/12/01/coreos-calls-docker-fundame...

> Imagine they didn't mention Docker. I can see you writing about "stealing of ideas", "lies", "not being straight-forward", "this is just a Docker clone by they don't mention Docker so they are being shady" and so on.

No, I would definitely not say that.

> without resorting to a press campaign like this one

So, clearly stating their concerns about the direction your company has taken, and why they feel the need to create a competing solution is bad?

The only way that article can be considered "negative" is if your opinion is that Docker, Inc are the gods of containerisation and should be considered the be-all and end-all of solutions to container based software deployments etc.
