Windows Containers


if I wanted to containerize notepad++.. what solution would I choose? and can it be done?


while struggling to find usage examples for docker (on windows) I was thinking that containerization of applications would be great... of course it'd be a lot like app-v... in a way at least..
is it only service-based applications like msSql etc. that'd be appropriate to consider for dockerization?
is there anywhere I can find good examples of real-life usage examples? I know I won't find enterprises running a lot of dockers since it's still in preview but still... people must've had thoughts :-)
Kindest regards, Martin

I'm also in the same boat like Martin since our client would like to know what apps can be containerized. Can we containerize desktop apps? Please shed some light on this.HARISH
Considering the fact that containers functionality is still in preview phases, there aren't much info available about it. While looking for information about what apps can be installed in a container, I came across this page:
https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/virtualization/windowscontainers/reference/app_compat
I doubt any GUI based application would be supported on containers (those that require local GUI as opposed to web servers which can be remotely accessed via a web browser) because you don't have ability to launch GUI on container images (whether it is nano
server or server core container images). cheers..uc
Launching GUI application inside containers was working with TP3. But, RDP support seems to be broken or removed from TP4.
