    Crazy fast! You can use DNS instead of IP to connect.

    You can also re-map ports and setup multiple, so if you wanted CentOS1, CentOS2, Ubuntu1, Ubuntu2

    It took me under two minutes to have four Linux desktops. Total storage for the image is <1.1GB. If you're on a slow WAN download that can be an issue. After the image is downloaded, that's really fast to get them launched.

    I used this to check if a site was down for just me. You aren't kidding that it's a 2s launch.

    Can some kind soul show me the step-by-step to install the package from GitHub on Ubunto?

    Basically, I have no idea on what to do when looking at a GitHub link/

    I've never done the docker setup.

    turns out I don't have a docker username so I need to run the command with sudo.

    @nk215 if you want to add your user to the docker group so you do not need to sudo:
    Code:
    sudo usermod -aG docker $USER
