Docker image for Windows

Has any one tried building a docker image for Windows (7.1/8)? The closest answer available for me is from ScottGu’s Blog. See here http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/docker-and-microsoft-integrating-docker-with-windows-server-and-microsoft-azure

But I was wondering, is there any one else tried to build the same?

    Currently, Windows does not support containerization like the Linux kernel does. The announcement from Scott Gu that you linked to details that Docker has partnered with Microsoft and the Microsoft will be building in containerization technology into the next version of Windows. However, for now, there is no way to create a native Windows container and you will have to use tools like boot2docker to achieve containerization on Windows (although boot2docker is a virtual machine running Linux on Windows)

    WinDocks just released a port of the Docker engine for Windows 8, Windows 10, Windows Server 2012, and Windows Server 2016. We may look into supporting Windows Server 2008 . . . and would have Windows 7 at the same time. There is a free downloadable version available at WinDocks

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
