Windows Image on Docker

How can I create an image in Docker with Windows as the base OS.

For instance; the ‘FROM‘ command in a Dockerfile is used to load the base OS kernel. Eg: ‘FROM ubuntu‘(ubuntu kernel in this case).

  • Docker service does not start
  • Scaling microservices using Docker
  • Errors building two different projects with stack on the same machine
  • 'clear' doesn't clean the screen when I run docker on Windows Command Prompt
  • Using Docker for Asp.Net 5.0 Development on Linux
  • Should I Compile My Application Inside of a Docker Image
  • Is there a way in which I can run a command like ‘FROM windows7‘.
    I need it to setup image for build purpose, since I need to run Microsoft compiler ‘cl’ ; which runs only on windows.

    So the dockerfile will look something like:

    FROM windows7

    RUN install cl

  • Docker+Rails+Postgres: app can't access database container
  • Docker + Rspec + Capybara - arguments[0] is undefined
  • docker akka and scala, app start and stop just after without reason
  • Docker-Compose Elkstack

  • eclipse che docker - can not create workspace - <no value>/lib/linux_amd64/terminal

    Docker depends on the sharing of an linux kernel.

    In the moment Microsoft and Docker are working on a Windows version, sharing the windows kernel. This is already working! But only for windows 10 insider build. Where a special linux kernel like micro windows is included, which is then the base for the windows container.

    A

    FROM windows7

    will never exist. Depending on the architecture of windows7.

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