I agree with what you're saying, BUT. I had originally said:

100% great tool with perfect use cases, but often found people use it when just not needed

Everything you're describing are tools/websites with very specific needs - It's not often somebody needs to upload a heif images - This is my exact point :) Most websites don't need anything fancy and work fine - so Docker is too much, but IF you have a specific non-standard requirement, then this is where these tools become useful.

Funnily enough we picked up a PHP 5.6 project the other week using an ancient ruby, gulp and compass configuration - I laughed to myself thinking this was a good candidate for a containerised project :) But I proved my own point, A complex problem needs a more complex solution! Whereas everything else works fine!
