    OpenGL on VMware seems miles ahead, at least for that.

    Docker is indeed a container and not a VM.

    However I misread the OP's post. I thought he was looking to run Ubuntu on Windows, which is possible using docker, whether advisable or not is a different subject.

    The title specifically states VM though and not a container? Reading through the posts, at no point do I see where using docker fulfills his use case?
    That's why I'm asking, curious as to why you suggest it.

    OPs don't always know what they need when creating the thread.

    Thread title is also not clear on whether Windows will be a host or a guest.

    Just set your network connection in Windows as a metered connection, and it won't auto download all the updates.

    Also, when I started to learn Ubuntu I just used the shell on Windows to install Ubuntu. With the last update you just get it from the Windows Store. Much easier for people that want to learn Unix and still stay in Windows.

    Doesn't work. It still downloads "critical" updates. Microsoft basically do what they want with the updates.

    I've tried just about all the "fixes" - metered connection, changing gpo's, registry hacks, disabling services, etc.

    Updates always come back.
