Getting a Shell in the Docker for Windows Moby VM

2018 Update: Easiest option is Justin's repo and image

Just run this from your CLI and it'll drop you in a container with full permissions on the Moby VM. Only works for Moby Linux VM (doesn't work for Windows Containers). Note this also works on Docker for Mac.

docker run -it --rm --privileged --pid=host justincormack/nsenter1
