BREAKING: Red Hat CEO admits he "has no idea what Kubernetes is"
“Pretty sure it’s like, Rust, I think,” stated Canonical CEO.
In an exclusive interview with The Lunduke Journal, Red Hat CEO, Matt Hicks, admitted that he has “no idea what Kubernetes is” and that he thinks it “has something to do with containers or boxes or something.”
“I asked our CTO to explain Kubernetes to me,” stated Hicks. “He said we don’t call it Kubernetes anymore. We call it K8s. So. You know. That cleared that up.”
To better understand how the CEO of a company which offers Kubernetes solutions could not understand what it is, The Lunduke Journal reached out to the leadership of another company in the Kubernetes industry: Mark Shuttleworth, the CEO of Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu Linux.
“Pretty sure it’s like, Rust, I think,” stated Shuttleworth. “Yeah. Definitely has something to do with Rust. Rust is good.”
“Rust?! He said that? No, no no,” stated Kubernetes expert, Kelsey Hightower. “K8s is all about DevOps container orchestration — on planet scale — in a serverless cloud.”

I'm starting to get your sense of humor
Offering Kubernetes means you've found a problematic environment and then realised that if you refuse to eliminate some problems' causes you can instead sell solutions layered on top of one another with each next layer intending to abstract from the looming complexity of the previous.
