(#ewyqh5a) The thing for me of late (past 10 year sor so) is that static linking, especially with languages and toolchains like that of {Go](https://golang.org) basically give you a portability where you almost never have to care about the system you’re deploying to. Just deploy the binary in whatever form and you’re good to do. That’s a BIG win in my DevOps/SRE/PRE books!
