Docker Adds Windows, Mac Versions

The open source containerization tool is expanding beyond Linux.


Docker has released private beta versions of two new editions for Mac and Windows. The open source containerization tools integrate with the native hypervisors for both platforms (Apple Hypervisor Framework for OS X and Microsoft Hyper-V for Windows). The tools do not yet include a GUI, but Docker has purchased a company called Kitematic that offers a Docker interface which could be integrated into future versions of the software.

For now, both Docker for Windows and Docker for Mac require a Linux VM to be running on the system. Microsoft is also working on developing Windows-native containers.
