Update to the Docker Desktop terms
Professional use of Docker Desktop in large organizations (more than 250 employees or more than $10 million in annual revenue) requires users to have a paid Docker subscription. While the effective date of these terms is August 31, 2021, there is a grace period until January 31, 2022, for those that require a paid subscription. For more information, see the blog Docker is Updating and Extending Our Product Subscriptions.
Docker is an open platform for developing, shipping, and running applications. Docker enables you to separate your applications from your infrastructure so you can deliver software quickly. With Docker, you can manage your infrastructure in the same ways you manage your applications. By taking advantage of Docker’s methodologies for shipping, testing, and deploying code quickly, you can significantly reduce the delay between writing code and running it in production.
You can download and install Docker on multiple platforms. Refer to the following section and choose the best installation path for you.
A native application using the macOS sandbox security model which delivers all Docker tools to your Mac.
A native Windows application which delivers all Docker tools to your Windows computer.
Install Docker on a computer which already has a Linux distribution installed.
