You start a brand new project and you want to use Docker, but you don't know which images you should use? How to choose which image is the best one? Is it enough just to check the stars and the downloads on Docker Hub? If not, what else do you need to check?

I know, I know. It is hard to resist some times on treating Docker images like VMs. I totally get it, but I prefer to not do that. You see, there is no sense to put everything in a custom image, every server and every product you develop, with all their necessary libraries. And I will explain myself.
