re: Why is Docker on macOS So Much Worse Than Linux? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I had less issues running docker inside an Ubuntu VM than directly in Mac 😟

 

This makes some sense, unfortunately. If indeed the case generally, Docker devs should suggest such a solution, rather than providing a substandard VM of their own for MacOS. I'm hearing these reports after learning of "Doki malware" and I'm losing confidence in the product. Or should I say I'm losing faith in the organization behind the product.

 

Part of me agrees with you. However, they (Docker) are definitely in a tough spot. Whereas Microsoft was cooperative in creating a bridge to their kernel with WSL-2, Apple generally keeps macOS under lock and key. i.e. Docker for Mac will be at the mercy of the macOS Hyperkit.

The fact that the new Docker for Mac will ship with Mutagen def shows me that they hear us and are doing whatever they can to alleviate the situation.

 

fwiw, I've taken the Docker Edge Build with Mutagen for a spin and it's been very good! Once they work out the kinks, hopefully it consistently improves the experience for everyone.
