Are you let down when you saw there is no guide to use Windows Server 2016 under *nix environments? I really loved Microsoft when I heard they are working on Windows containers, but when this week has arrived, it was sad to see that installation requirements were Windows and HyperV. But actually it is not. You just have to modify the VHD file a bit with nicer tools and execute the already available script in the downloaded VM. I will assume you are running a decent version of Linux and accepted EULA and all the legal stuff that I do not care.
1. Getting the required tools:
$ sudo apt-get install qemu-kvm virt-manager // or virtualbox, but we need qemu-kvm for image manipulation $ sudo apt-get install qemu-utils libguestfs-tools // image manipulation tools
