How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

Support Process Isolation for Containers on Windows 10

Both Process Isolation and Hyper-V Isolation for Containers are available in Windows Server 2016 but Windows 10 only supports Hyper-V isolation.

Hyper-V isolation has benefits, but also has many drawbacks such as resource allocation, performance as well as stability. A simple check of the Docker for Windows issues board ( https://github.com/docker/for-win/issues ) shows a large imbalance of Windows 10 and Hyper-V isolation related issued, where the Windows Server 2016 issues are much less common.

I have Docker build scripts that build 5 Docker images, this script runs in 1 minute and 40 seconds on WIndows Server 2016, but takes 5 minutes and 30 seconds on Windows 10 and has rather frequent issues related to timeouts and hangs.

Please un-hamstring Windows 10 and support Process Isolation for Containers.
