Not at all. Others have mentioned that some debugging tools haven't made the switch yet. Ignoring that, I'd agree that tmux--being more modern---makes more sense.

Yes and no. Sure Atomic's main use will be as cloud host, but why not develop your containers on the host you'll ultimately be using? Plus Atomic is a very good *as an OS* full stop. I actually prefer virtualizing and working with Atomic to the other minimal OS's or even real Fedora. I don't think I'll be alone in this, especially when you consider the "I use OSX and virtualize Linux" crowd. Once you embrace the "everything in a container" model of Atomic, it's a really good experience in and of itself.
