Is it not better to just install vm on your Mac, spin up a Linux OS and then install docker on that?

I keep revisiting these posts every few months. Looks like Mutagen integration isn't happening now so I think I'll try the Linux VM as well.

Better performing, definitely.

However, it does come with the additional tax of more networking overhead in the form of port forwards to/from the host/guest, or reverse proxying for more complicated setups.
