I have recently started using Docker on Windows 10 and it has been nothing but a frustrating experience.
(a) Why doesn’t docker allow deleting base images or rebasing the child image as the image? I have looked for it everywhere and all the responses given online are nothing but crap, beating around the bush solutions.
- One personality mentioned that since images are read-only images and docker adds a read/write layer when a container is launched, then why does the parent image show dependencies with a child image if I have created a new image by using
(b) Even after system prune and image prune and all sorts of 100 different prunes, the windows docker app doesn’t seem to release the space it has been occupying and only increases manyfold with every commit. Searching for it shows that this issue has been reported many times and the docker developer team had claimed to have resolved it with their update in August 2018, which I have found it is completely untrue.
