its fantastic, I cant wait for put my hands on! Question, docker? works well?
Docker client works well from a Linux distro running in WSL. You can use the Docker client to operate a local Docker for Windows instance running on the same machine, or a remote machine/VM/cloud.

This idea has quite a few votes, but I think it could afford to be more clear. Any chance we could get it fixed up a little? My assumption is that this is about running the actual Docker engine proper. Not the client tools.

Bash on Ubuntu on Windows is a great feature. Docker is the only thing missing for me to be able to develop on Windows.
There is an issue in official github trying to make work.

This is so important for developers these days, I subscribe to "If we suddenly had native Docker + containers... bye bye OSX." :D although there is love for everyhting

This relates to this "bug": https://github.com/Microsoft/BashOnWindows/issues/85
I think it'd be very important to diagnose the underlying problem, and, if possible, fix it :)
Unfortunately even the docker log keeps empty ...
I tried installing Docker in bash with Windows 10 build 14316, but it doesn't seem to work. Docker needs kernel 3.10 or higher, but the kernel in bash for Windows appears as 3.4.0+:
# uname -r
Agree that this would be super useful to be able to use Docker in bash without having to install "Docker for Windows".

Docker team is working on getting it to work on Windows like a native app using Hyper-V. I hope they have native Windows networking. https://blog.docker.com/2016/03/docker-for-mac-windows-beta/

Good question. The 'interface' they say that replicates the Linux kernel would have to implement all the kernel API features that Docker uses. In a video I watched it looked like some things are still missing so I guess there'd probably be some hard to diagnose issues or it would just be 'no,' but I'd be overjoyed to be wrong!
