Docker on Windows 10 with WSL2

Hello! Today I would like to share my experience of using Docker on Windows.

Recently I tried to run one of my projects on Windows 10. I use Linux as my development environment and run projects in Docker. Docker works great on Linux.

Previously I also tried to use Docker on Windows/Mac, but all the time I had different issues. Finally, I just installed Linux into Virtualbox and used Docker there.

Everything becomes better when WSL was introduced in Windows 10. WSL creates a Linux environment in Windows 10. It's not just a virtual machine, Linux is somehow integrated into the host environment. WSL2 is compatible with Docker for Windows.
