re: So, if we want to use Docker in Windows or Mac, we will end up using VM technology at the end of the day. Is that correct?

Correct. From Wikipedia: "Docker on macOS uses a Linux virtual machine to run the containers. It is also possible to run those on Windows using Hyper-V or docker-machine."

Windows has two types of containers — Windows Server Containers and Hyper-V Isolation — in which Hyper-V is a VM. More details are here - docs.microsoft.com/en-us/virtualiz...

I understand that production servers are running on Linux machines.


Note: Microsoft will soon start shipping a full Linux kernel within Windows. This may change how Docker runs in Windows computers. Let's wait and see.
