As per previous chapters, we will continue to use our local Docker installations. Again, the screenshots in this chapter will be from my preferred operating system, macOS—yes, even though we are going to be running Windows containers, you can still use your macOS client. More on that later.
The Docker commands we will be running will work on all three of the operating systems on which we have installed Docker so far. However, in this chapter, the containers we will be launching will only work on a Windows Docker host. We will be using VirtualBox and Vagrant on macOS and Linux-based machines to assist in getting a Windows Docker host up and running.
