I am new to Docker.

What are the major differences between Docker and traditional VM?

Is Docker stable enough for daily use?

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

There are a few serious problems with this question - among them you don't define what a "traditional VM" is (VMware? VirtualBox? BSD Jails?), or what your criteria for "stability" are (though I suppose we can infer "doesn't crash" as a basic metric?) -- I think the question Michael Hampton pointed you at might answer what you're looking for though. If so let me know and I'll mark this as a duplicate. If not, please make this question more specific and it may get reopened. Thanks! – voretaq7 May 3 '13 at 4:02

The following appears on Docker's Getting Started page:

Docker is still under heavy development. It should not yet be used in production. Check the repo for recent progress.

That speaks volumes.

Its only being available for Ubuntu is also a serious problem...
