Why would a volume slider be a server-side service?

Real shame to see techquickie move towards clickbait.

me: huh i really do wonder what allows them to have so much activity throughout so many different homes. Ahhhhh the code is in containers. So thats how netflix is able to handle all of these requests with limited server power.

2:01 For the volume-slider? Why would that require server-logic at all, shouldn't it be a pure client thing?

The Windows logo on VM presentation is only illustrative.

In real life, all of this are running a Linux server distro, most likely IBM's redhat, centos, Ubuntu or debian, with docker.

I just say that to those people who don't know where Linux is used, and in this example, dominates the field
