Docker desktop for windows without WSL2

I want to use qiime2 on windows without WSL2. Is it possible to use Qiime2 on docker desktop for windows without WSL2?

Hello and welcome to :qiime2:!

Qiime 2 depends on Unix-specific libraries, Windows is not Unix. If you plan to run Docker, then just install it on any of Linux distributions and mount a drive to move files between OS.

That said, IMHO running Docker locally on Desktop is an overkill. WSL is more convenient solution for running Q2 locally.


Thank you for your prompt reply. I understood the contents. I try to install WSL and run Q2 locally.

Thank you!
