Nice way of making Docker approachable. There are two minor corrections I would like to suggest:
VMware's hypervisor is ESXi, not ESX1. Also, kernel refers to the core of the OS, not to hardware.
On a more important note, you left your scenario dangling without resolution at the end of your story, especially the fact that you're referring to a Linux box. Docker, however, cannot run Windows containers on Linux. The intricacies are covered in this StackOverflow Q&A:

Thank you for picking that up! I'm very much a newbie to this myself, so I will read up on what you have said, thank you!
