Discussion on: Wait, Docker is deprecated in Kubernetes now? What do I do?

Just adding my 2 cents from my own experience.

At work, we are using classical RKE Rancher with Kubernetes with Docker and k3s Rancher with Kubernetes with containerd. So I have experience with both. The problem is, that in our case it often seemed like containerd, at least the way it is used with Kubernetes, is not that stable and reliable. It showed us a lot of bugs and issues, which the legacy Kubernetes never had shown.

So I'm asking myself, how can they suddenly guarantee that all this new stuff is even production ready, when we had not too many but quite substantial issues with it?

(Perhaps the issue was mainly to be found in the whole Rancher thing, but we cannot confirm this.)
