Interesting - espcially given the convoluted explanation I read hereabouts of how to get Netbeans to work in a docker container!
I'm no expert on Docker I freely admit, but what do I gain from putting my dev environment into a docker container that I don't get from just using a conventional VM - especially when I want access to physcal devices such as tills, sensors, remote servers etc.
I can see use cases for small, independent server apps where you might need to spin up extra instances to improve load handling or to increase capacity. Or for starting up small web-based services quickly, being able to relocate them to other hardwre for failover etc, but I get all that already with existing VM technology...
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it is rubbish, I just can't see how I could make effective use of it.

I tried installing Docker, several times and nothing happened; no warnings, no errors, nothing so I started doing research and found that it required 8 or better. If this is not the case maybe I just tried to install the wrong product?

There are several solution to run Docker... The new one (Docker for Windows) needs Windows 10 or 2016 (it is actually built in since 14393)... However there is the Docker Toolbox (older) that can go for older Windows (back to 7)

I use Logitech M187s. I have had several over the years. (I currently have 3 operational, one more yet to be unpackaged.) I mouse with fingertips, forearm and heel of the hand resting on the desk. The M187 is small and light, ideal for fingertip use. Also compact enough to use on a thigh, armrest, whatever, when on the move.

I'm having the predecessor of the anywhere in my laptop bag. It's useful for bringing along, but it's to small for me for daily use.
At home I'm having the Marathon mouse, it's good enough for most usage, and the batteries lasts for years (really).
If I would go up in price I would go for the MX Vertical since it's better ergonomically.
At work I'm having a Contour RollerMouse Pro2, to save my shoulders. It really works, but takes quite a while getting used to.
