    Great use case ! So simple

    But I would like to point out to people if they are using this for checking suspect sites if your emailed cut and paste into the docker, don't open your web mail from the docker image.

    I modified the lines to add a prompt for desired password and named the docker container = desktop for easier management

    Code:
    read -ep "enter desired password for VNC on port 5900: " pass; docker run -it --rm --name desktop -p 6080:80 -p 5900:5900 -e VNC_PASSWORD=$pass dorowu/ubuntu-desktop-lxde-vnc
