I’m a perfectionist, and so I tend to define my problem space very narrowly so I can realistically come us with what I think is the perfect solution.
Then every once in a while something pulls my self-imposed blinders away and I get overwhelmed with the scale of the world’s problems.
Screw you, birdsite.
What K8s does is complex by definition, and so the UX is complex.
I know I'm not the first person to suggest that the people who know K8s the best will often end up rolling their own solution.
The curse of software is that once you understand something deeply enough you often just rewrite it to work for you.
Possible rephrasing of the lesson: Complexity worsens as it tries to hide itself
Take Kubernetes. People who think of container orchestration as a single problem are wrong. It's a lot of related problems. K8s is scary complicated because it tries to wrap all of them.

If you guys are scared of a fediverse server archiving your stuff, good... but understand that this behavior doesn't have to announce itself.
Those that do are little scary, those that don't... well, they're monitoring.
I'll let you decide for yourself... but just know that OSINT on the Fedi is a trivial task if one were to wish to undertake it.
