Good idea to actually try this. One thing: Could you please add the text of the screenshot as actual text (Ubuntu terminal supports copy&paste). "Real" text has numerous advantages (easier to read, supports screen readers, crawlable by search engines)

@RоryMcCune: Interesting. However, according to this Docker blog entry from August 2015, this will be a port that allows Docker to run Windows images on Windows, not Linux images on Windows.

I added my own answer, so this information is not buried in a comment.

Also note that there is a Docker port for FreeBSD, so there is a precedent for porting Docker to a different kernel.

Actually, I think it's too early to answer this either way. As described in a comment by Scott Hanselman, the Windows 10 kernel now accepts Linux syscalls. So the question is whether the syscalls that Docker needs (for chroot and namespaces) were implemented or not. While the answer is likely "no", there is no definitive information either way,as far as I can tell.

@Sirex: Yes, that's the problem with security - it always has a cost.

Oh, right, forgot that PuTTY has a Linux version, too. Anyway, nice answer, thanks.

comment Set PuTTY's window title to name of loaded session?
Neat idea with the script. However, AFAIK, Putty by default stores sessions in the Windows registry. If yours uses files, you are probably using a modified version (though it might still work by exporting/importing the config). Could you mention that in the answer?

I know I can do that - it's mentioned in my question, along with why I am looking for a different solution.

comment What happens when a physical machine fails in a virtual environment?
@Sherif: Basically, yes, and yes. If you want to understand this in more detail, have a look at the Wikipedia article, it briefly addresses VM migration and failover. If you still have questions, ask a more specific question.

comment Is there any way to restrict user from changing file extensions in Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7?
This looks suspiciously like an XY problem. Can you tell us what problem you are trying to solve?

comment American Users have wrong IP address geolocation
@kasperd: "you can allow" -> "you absolutely should". There are many ways in which geolocation can go wrong, plus the user may want different content (on holiday, preparing a trip...). I hate it when a site gives me stuff based on geolocation with no way to choose.

comment How can I destroy data on a failed hard disk without voiding warranty?
@JoelCoel: No, that's not true. If the drive is properly encrypted, a brute force attack is (phyically) impossible - see e.g. Amount of simple operations that is safely out of reach for all humanity?. Of course, there are a lot of mistakes you can make when encrypting things...

comment Is there a way to provide user-specific passwords for Wi-Fi?
The captive portal is something to consider. However, note that captive portals usually authenticate by the MAC address once you are logged in, so this is just a more sophisticated way of setting up MAC filtering.

comment Should Carrier Ethernet traffic be encrypted?
Also, even if you have "full and sole control" over the hardware, it will be difficult to enforce it. You cannot patrol every meter of a kilometer-long cable.
