Do I really need lxcbr0 and docker0?

For some time I have noticed my system has docker0 and lxcbr0.   I couldnt understand why docker would both and too.

After a little searching I found out that since Docker 0.9, it hasnt used LXC instead using its own native libcontainer.

The lxcbr0 bridge appears to be something left over from an early version.

It can be removed using:

sudo ifconfig lxcbr0 down

sudo brctl delbr lxcbr0
