From Alexis Richardson's talk at on 25 November 2014 - 7+1 new myths for New OS:

  1. The application lifecycle is independent of the OS
  2. Distributed systems require a panoply of new skills and tools.
  3. Apps must be fundamentally rewritten, and tooling replaced.
  4. Platforms are better at designing your app than you are.
  5. You really need an all inclusive system.
  6. Dev/test and production need different tooling.
  7. Coordination is a platform concern not an app level concern.
  8. Docker will solve all known problems of computing
