Can someone explain the different types of "Image"?

I get the one click installer. If anything I probably should have used that to begin with. But I chose “Distribution” then set up Ubuntu 16.04 myself. Can someone explain in depth the difference between “Distribution” and “Container Distribution”, why I would want to choose one over the other.

Hello friend!

A container distribution is basically a Linux distribution built and optimized for using Docker containers. You’re only going to want to choose one of those if you know how to use Docker and intend to use it for your project. Otherwise just a standard Linux distribution will be best.
