Docker client in Windows

Microsoft loves open source and I for one a Linux fan. Last month Microsoft has announced a partnership with Docker Inc to include Windows containers in vNext Windows server editions. Also Microsoft Azure supports Linux VMs running Azure configured with Docker containers.

The limitation to use a Linux client machine or boot2docker program on Windows to access Docker containers has been removed. Microsoft has introduced a CLI for Windows which can directly access same. It’s a actually a docker program running under windows command line.
