This leaves Cockpit: one of Cockpit's more popular features is
ability to manage Docker images and containers from the UI. Cockpit
has the ability to start Docker on the system if it's installed but
not running. I'd like to recommend that Cockpit also grow the
capability to install Docker if an administrator wants to use that
portion of the UI. This way, we can avoid installing it by default and
just deploy it automatically once an Administrator is interested in
One concern I have is that once docker is installed from Cockpit, there
is no way to remove it from Cockpit, so it becomes an irreversible action.
We do start services on demand, but those can be stopped and disabled
again elsewhere in the UI.
