Would be nice to have Docker available via the Mac and Windows app stores, to make it even easier to install.
for windows you can install it using chocolatey. I think for mac you have ‘brew’ which is actually better because you can script your installs.
Chocolatey and Homebrew are quite excellent for automating installation, especially for developers and CI servers. I was thinking app store publication would be helpful for more newbies as well.
Maybe, but I think a typical user of docker would likely be a programmer or operator and would likely install the product either by exe file or some package manager.
Either way the app stores are usually sandboxed so you cannot simply put stuff in there and expect things to work.
