Linux Containers on Windows

A tweet by Stefan Scherer (highly recommended follow!) made me aware, that with the latest Insider Preview of Windows Server you can run Linux Containers on Windows. Unfortunately his Vagrant box didn’t work for me, very likely because of my severely limited Vagrant knowhow. Therefore I decided to set it up manually. As I probably went through some unnecessary steps and it ended with an open issue, I created a Gist for it, so that feedback and further adjustments are easier than on the blog. If you want to see the following on your own environment, you should first try Stefan’s easier way, but if it fails, you might want to follow my instructions

Once again, I can just marvel at the way Microsoft has gone in the last couple of years…
