None actually. The more I work with them the less I like them. They serve their goal allright, but with what they "fix", they also bring new maint nightmares.
For work I mostly (have to) work with docker, but it won't get my vote

I'd vote for Solaris Zones, but they're not in Linux. The thing that comes closest is probably Warden ...

Voted for Docker because it's what I chose a few months ago when I started working with containers and it seems the simplest to set up but I have had quite a few issues with container networking without messing up my host firewall rules (Docker tries to overwrite iptables as soon as the bridge interface loads) and the inflexible container restart policies practically prevent me from using it in the way that I need to.

What about Qemu/KVM and OpenVZ?

chroot (I don't do much complicated/important to need more, though someone suggested overlayfs is similar.)

Debootstrap is brilliant. Does it belong in this category? You typically chroot into the new env.

Example from the wiki:

"To setup an Ubuntu system from Debian:
main # mkdir /ubuntu_xenial_1604
main # debootstrap --arch=amd64 xenial /ubuntu_xenial_1604"

How beautiful is that?

I voted for Docker because that's what I've using. Works well enough and as advertized.
