I will recommend using Ubuntu or Linux for Dockers.
It's so much integrated, provides ease and automation easily.

Hi Shan,

Would Ubuntu in particular helping working with docker easier compared to other Linux distros?

Sorry, I have only used in Windows and Ubuntu that's why I can't compare Ubuntu with other Linux distro.
In my personal opinion, using good Linux distro would be more preferred for docker compared with Windows.

For the sake of argument, I would suggest Alpine Linux. A lot of images used for Docker are based on Alpine anyway.
