Run Windows programs in container on linux host

(Vrms) #1

we have seen that docker can run GUI applications on a linux host. Also I have read somewhere docker/containers might potentially replace current standard package management at some point.

Also it seems Microsoft loves docker

now, just wondering whether anybody thinks it might be a potential usecase to run Windows executable’s (let’s say Excel, or whatever) in a container on linux host at any point in the foreseeable future?

thinking about it … that may be less of a technical question rather then whether MS would be willing to provide a licensing model that enables such.
