Docker Daemon for Windows
I want to explore Docker development targeting Windows containers. I understand Microsoft has put out the Tech Preview for Server 2016, but am wondering if there are other options for Docker containers running on Windows?

No, there are not (well, unless you consider boot2docker an option). Original Docker containers are built upon LXC, which is a Linux technology. Microsoft had to implement some new APIs for Windows Server 2016 that Docker can wrap to make Windows Docker containers run on Windows Server 2016.
To develop Windows containers, you can do any of the following:
- Run containers directly on Windows 10
- Run a WS2016 VM on Windows 10 and develop with that
- Run WS2016 bare metal or on Azure
