Currently, Microsoft’s has released the latest version of Windows which is called as “windows” that ship as a container image.
The world always needs a new Windows server, because Microsoft’s chats with developers who have taught it that they want something which includes some more functionality, it may either Windows Server Core or Nano Server.
The Microsoft’s Lars Iwer, a program manager for Hyper-V, explained that fairly a few customers were only interested in moving their legacy applications into the containers to benefit from that container orchestration and management technologies like the Kubernetes.
However, not all applications might be easily containerized, in some cases due to missing parts like the proofing support which is not even included in the Windows Server Core.
Microsoft’s not explained yet that if the new image is full with the Windows Server or a subset. Then the graphic atop this story suggests that there are much more APIs available than in either Core or Nano, and Iwer’s post illustrates the exact reasons for the new imagine include for running the automated UI tests as the part of their CI/CD processes or may be using some other graphics capabilities such as DirectX which are not easily available within the other container images.
Microsoft is not notifying more about the image that it is full Windows Server or a subset.
