Use Alpine Linux for convenience images

stop using debain images - get on the alpine train. it would make things alot easier for users to customize things. I know its trivial, but trivail runs both ways. Make life easier for the paying customers.

    Thanks for your feedback! Right now we use Debian as some of the tooling like `tar` can have a different behaviour in Alpine vs GNU `tar`. Now that we rely on that tooling for product features (e.g. Workspaces) we chose to use Debian-based images to ensure the stability of your CI / CD process.

    I'm curious to know what aspects of debian based images are more complicated to customize?
