  • Hello,

    What's your use case for this?

    In order to make containers work in Windows, our team had to do significant work to change the operating system. Because of this, there are no plans on going back and changing past versions of the OS.

    Regards,

  • Containers are not equivalent to virtual machines.

    You cannot run any arbitrary Windows version in a container.

    Only Server (in the two options you outlined) and only 2016 and later.
