Future architecture of Linux Container on Windows


(Apachemaven) #1

Hello everyone,

I’am writing here because I’am confused about how Linux Container currently run on windows and what the place of LinuxKit is. I currently use the stable version of Docker for Windows. If I look into Hyper-V I can see a MobyLinuxVM.
I know LinuxKit is designed to build minimal vms and host docker. Does this MobyLinuxVM was build with LinuxKit?

Whats the future of LCOW? I heard it would be to run multiple vms for each container. Is that right?
