Subject Re: Drill on Windows
Date Fri, 20 Apr 2018 04:13:58 GMT

As it turns out, I was just out there looking for an official docker 
image today, and was a little disappointed there wasn't one. It's not 
that hard to make my own, but always preferable to me to use an official 
image where I can just control it using parameters.

Would be much appreciated if you built one.

So you get support for running on Windows 10 for free with no performance penalty. Plus everyone
expects software to be package in docker images these days anyway.

and I can create a Jira and make one. I'm pretty bored right now and need something to do
