Comment (by darkblueb):

 .. further investigations on the R rocker/geospatial docker world (23
 layers, 1.3GB)

 `sudo docker pull rocker/geospatial;`
 `sudo docker run -ti rocker/geospatial bash`

 It is a full linux in there, with /libs and /docs
 As is often the case with R, the docs are quite nice
 Specifically I found a part where they discuss native performance with
 gdal and GEOS.
 gdal provides a postgres connector, and it reads PostGIS directly
 and, WKT and WKB can be read, and the Shapefile driver.
 They claim near-native performance on all of those.. 20x of the previous
 rgdal or whatever

 no benchmarks yet..  the important item at **osgeolive** is installing
 `sf` with docs that are acceptable to the R team.

self-contained bootable DVD, USB thumb drive or Virtual Machine based on Lubuntu, that allows you to try a wide variety of open source geospatial software without installing anything.
