Use Docker, it's awesome because you won't need VMs anymore.

Using Win7: You need a VM for running docker. 😫

    Don't, just don't! If you can't dual boot just throw an Ubuntu Server VM and run docker inside of it, that's what I do

    Don't worry guys. 😂
    I already have dual boot with Linux. Everything is fine.
    Just the facts about Docker and Win7 made me laugh because we've been told how great Docker is and so on.

    @Manao Great :D

    Ya this is ironic, use docker to avoid vm, but need a vm to run docker XD

    You need a Linux kernel to run docker.

    Wait, doesn't Windows 7 support docker? Always worked on Linux with them, but I thought there was a service for Windows too.

    I actually suffer with this. Trying to get Docker to run in Win10 and something that's so easy in Linux to install its being hell.

    Docker does not necessarily replace VMs. It is a container system, so the OS is virtualized, whereas an VM virtualizes the hardware.

    I love the idea of docker and used it multiple times but the memory leaks and not being able to define storage limits are a no go for me :/

    @stevemk14ebr At the end I just created an Ubuntu VM and work with Docker there.

    Thanks though.
