repost from here:
Im having trouble discerning in the docks. Where I work actually doesn’t allows WSL and WSL2 due to some security concerns (Probably a different conversation all together).
From the documentation it seems to read WSL or WSL2 is required for linux containers. I have tested removing WSL and relaunched docker desktop on windows, and it seems to deploy a DockerDesktopVM in hyperV which seems to work all the same, albeit it starts up a little slower.
But a lot of documentation seems to say that this deployment was moved to WSL, however I am having trouble finding documentation about using Docker Desktop on windows without WSL. Hoping for some guidance! Thank you.
