dockerising X

One nice thing about docker is that you can use it to put X inside of it and then install vnc server in the container also. That way you could connect to it via vnc client and have shared clipboard and all. You could put firefox inside and have contained browsing environment(chromium requires privileges). Also with docker you have network bridge to your machine so you can controll with firewall communication with your machine. I found this to be quite usefull thing for browsing web since often time you hear even famous websites compromised. One could write script that would auto start vnc server on container also one could preset connections on vnc client that would enable fast starting up of the entire thing so in a few clicks and keystrokes you have contained browsing environment ready to go. 🙂 All software can be found easily on arch wiki
