Just a heads up for those who are looking into running Docker containers natively on WSL. While it's not usable for anything serious (even your toy project development), there is a way.
- We'll be using rkt and not Docker. So, no docker-compose for you.
- There will be some source code patching. Nothing serious, just a few lines.
- Very limited isolation and networking capabilities. Think of always
--net-hostand no DNS.
WSL doesn't have cgroups at the moment, and probably won't have them anytime soon, so no way Docker would work.
