I would like to add that, attempting to install “docker windows” on windows 8.1 gave me an error informing me to upgrade to windows 10 but I really wish to stick to windows 8.1 hence my question. (just to clear any confusion)
So I was given this advice by someone else
"I you have a good computer, you can use VirtualBox and download the .iso file of a linux distribution and create your virtual machine. You have tutorials or VirtualBox guide (I have the complete steps in my course , but is write in french ) … is my favorite solution because is fast and easly to deploy, but you must have a good computer … dualboot is more “professional” but he can be complicated to deploy the fist time and if you make a mistake, is not good … and the last solution is virtual private server, but is not free "
But I find the above advice a little complicated for me at the moment as I’m not well-acquainted with it. So I would like to ask if there’s actually another alternative to installing docker on windows 8.1? Can I even use docker on windows 8.1?
