My question is little vague but I tried looking for the answer here
and there but could not understand if I can leverage docker for my work.
I usually try different versions of java, python and other software like
different versions of eclipse, Linux package and other tools. This at
the end make my Ubuntu installation a complete mess and some time
completely broken. Then I started using Vm it solve most of the problem
but make my pc very slow for frequent switching.
So my question can I achieve my work using docker without affecting
my os? Can I run gui application, install different package(apt-get install) without
affecting underlying OS.
Switch actively between different docker container and underlying os.
Clean/remove unused/broken install of docker instance (containers?), share it to other to try out etc. Any pointer to similar use case or how to would be helpful.
