Docker Desktop is a perfectly serviceable way to use Docker on either MacOS or Windows, but for non-trivial use cases, it leaves much to be desired.

I recently happened upon one such use case that you might think would be relatively common: I develop on MacOS, but since my MacBook Pro only has 16GB of memory, I’d like to use another host – in this case, my personal Windows gaming computer, which has a whopping 32GB of memory – as a remote Docker host. How many of us hackers, nerds, and geeks out there work with our (usually) MacBook laptops during the day but then flip over to our custom-built Windows boxes after work to blast some aliens in the face?
