Full Description
Supported tags and respective Dockerfile links
trusty Ubuntu 14.04
xenial Ubuntu 16.04

These Containers depends on buildpack-deps

Why did i choose Ubuntu ?
Ubuntu is in my Opinion the most used and supported linux-distro.

I use some Applications with these containers. You can find them in github.com/Kry07/docker-apps.
Please Comment, otherwise i don't recognize that some one is using my work. I don't upload them anymore to dockerhub, because nobody is using them.

For more information about this image and its history, please see GitHub repo.

Definitely a cool project! I haven't been able to get a fully functional X server containerized on my box yet -- I can show xterm, but it's not processing inputs -- but I'll be coming back to this in the future.
