Please don't lose credibility by saying "a lot of people" see things 
like RancherVM as competitors to Nova [1] by pointing to a HackerNews 
[2] thread where two people discuss why RancherVM exists and where one 
of those people is Darren Shepherd, a co-founder of Rancher, previously 
at Citrix and GoDaddy with a long-known distaste for all things OpenStack.

I don't think that thread is particularly unbiased or helpful.

I'll respond to the rest of your (excellent) points a little later...


[1] Nova isn't actually mentioned there. "OpenStack" is.

[2] I've often wondered who has time to actually respond to anything on 
HackerNews. Same for when Slashdot was a thing. In fact, now that I 
think about it, I spend entirely too much time worrying about all of 
this stuff... ;)
