Docker users on Windows, do you use WSL2?

Hi all, A year ago I switched from the MacOS to Windows. In part due my keyboard kept breaking on my €3300 MacBook Pro, but also in part due the promise of WSL. I'm using Docker for about 4 years for development, but it never worked quite right with the original WSL.

Are there any WSL2 users that use Docker? What is your experience?

I'm not (yet) using WSL2 but I haven't had any issues with Docker in WSL. You just need to keep in mind that even though you're using the Linux Subsystem, Docker is actually still Docker for Windows.

Yeah, but that isn't the case with WSL2. So I'm curious if people have experienced other problems/challenges.
