What is Docker Immutable Workstation?

Quite simply, I can easily control the dev environment, rebuild it at will, and run programs "on my latop" when they are not installed or configured on the laptop. In fact I think the best part of this is configuration for my whole dev machine is sgtored on github, and can be re-created anywhere easily. With the volume mounted, I can then use emacs / konsole running inside a container, and adjust files that are stored on my local laptop.

Docker Immutable Workstation Alternatives & Comparisons

What are some alternatives to Docker Immutable Workstation?
Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for Docker containers. It handles scheduling onto nodes in a compute cluster and actively manages workloads to ensure that their state matches the users declared intentions.
Docker Compose
With Compose, you define a multi-container application in a single file, then spin your application up in a single command which does everything that needs to be done to get it running.
Rancher is an open source container management platform that includes full distributions of Kubernetes, Apache Mesos and Docker Swarm, and makes it simple to operate container clusters on any cloud or infrastructure platform.
Docker Swarm
Swarm serves the standard Docker API, so any tool which already communicates with a Docker daemon can use Swarm to transparently scale to multiple hosts: Dokku, Compose, Krane, Deis, DockerUI, Shipyard, Drone, Jenkins... and, of course, the Docker client itself.
Docker Machine
Machine lets you create Docker hosts on your computer, on cloud providers, and inside your own data center. It creates servers, installs Docker on them, then configures the Docker client to talk to them.
