Problem description

Docker for Mac and Docker for Windows cannot be downloaded without logging into Docker Store.

Problem location

Suggestions for a fix

It would be awesome if Docker for Mac and Docker for Windows could be downloaded without logging into Docker Store as not to make users jump through hoops. This was already previously possible, if I remember correctly.

I know that this can feel like a nuisance, but we've made this change to make sure we can improve the Docker for Mac and Windows experience for users moving forward.

As far as I can tell, the docs don't need changes, so I'll close this issue, but feel free to comment.

Um, what.

Is Docker closed-source freeware all of a sudden?

to make sure we can improve the Docker for Mac and Windows experience for users moving forward

Uhuh. You mean, force people to login with an email so we can target them with an ad campaign so we make money??

This feels dishonest. If you're trying to make money, say so. 'improve user experience' is the oldest, lamest excuse in the book...

You just made the 'user experience' suck by putting it behind a login-wall. One click installers are not new...and you don't need e-mail specific identifiers to collect install logs. I'm calling a giant load of baloney on this one.

I have a docker account already because I publish container images, but for consumers that just run images, this is a huge annoyance. Please reconsider this change.

For now, it would appear the direct link still works without logging in, but I wouldn't count on that being valid much longer: https://download.docker.com/win/stable/Docker%20for%20Windows%20Installer.exe

Welp, this is enough motivation for me to keep my eyes open for an alternate to Docker.

There's legitimately zero reason to hide it behind a login, and if there are good reasons I'd think this would be a great opportunity to share them.

Well, you know the market power of docker and try to get more information of your users. thats okay but it will not help to spread the docker love and it will not motivate people to develop more apps and services depending on docker, because noone wants to force his users into that marketing/registration shit.

@alexkit I don't think that's true. However, the Apache license does allow someone to create an account, download it, and then distribute it themselves, without requiring registration. So someone could create a github repo with the latest releases there, and that couldn't be stopped.

If someone were to do that, then docker would get even less analytics about the number of downloads.

i think this is the point where @Microsoft and @google should create collaboration to fork docker and take it from these greedy hands. Or move on to containerD or whatever. Docker is nothing else but a wrapper for containers and it doesn't deserve its position on the market.

Sorry, this is my 3rd post already so I am kind of riding the meme wave at this point, but just wanted to emphasis on this :
topkek

I personally don't mind that much, I use a unique email for almost every service I sign up to which tells me who sells what to whom, but it is still an inconvenience that has no practicality in any manner for the user no matter how hard you lie and how many "user experience disruption for digital nomads that want to become the next serverless b2b2c edge provider moving forward" you throw at us.

I know some decisions are not always in the right people's hands, but if your marketing team or anybody at Docker needs this information, for any reason whatsover, and we ask why you use this, and you evade the answer, how do you think people will react ?

There is absolutely no reason for you to hide behind your statement, except if you are in fact doing something "sketchy" with this data (why would you bs so hard otherwise ? Think about it from a user perspective. I am not saying this is the case. But with what you are telling us, which is nothing, what do you want us to think ?). A simple "we use that to see how much time you spend on docker in a day" or "we track the most used containers" or any thing else in the world apart from "for a better UX" would have been an acceptable answer in this case...

The mere fact this is the direction that Docker is deciding to take explains the backlash happening right now. It's about the the trust you just are not working to gain or maintain from users. Just wait and see what happens once your users don't trust your product.

@joaofnfernandes Please re-open this ticket, we are all very concerned about this issue.

Signing up for a Docker account to merely download the software is a life commitment apparently...

I would also like to pitch in and say that it is unnacceptable, short-sighted and hopelessly brain dead to demand email addresses for a suposedly free and open source project. Keep the corporate bullshit on a separate website on your store, but leave the community edition alone.

This is a dick move, stop being dicks, in case other people miss it in the thread: https://download.docker.com/mac/stable/Docker.dmg

BS move for BS reason: doesn't mean any improvment for users.
I will do my best to share direct DL links to docker builds instead of creating accounts.

Just wanted to try docker, signud up, and didn't receive the activation email so still can't download docker. What an improved experience. Congrats @joaofnfernandes !

Well at least provide SSO over Google, Facebook or Twitter accounts. Right now it's another user account with a password which I personally hate to do.

You can get the Docker for Desktop using a package manager.

Mac OS via Homebrew:

brew cask install docker

Windows via Chocolatey:

choco install docker-for-windows

Be sure to grab the CLI binaries as well.

Mac via Homebrew:

brew install docker

I really don't like to give info for a download, but since it was "olny" an id, password and e-mail I gave ir a shot. It was about 7h ago. No activation email received. Not in spam label. Asked 5 times for password reminder to try to activate. Nothing. Really frustrating.

So I'm going to say a big FUCK YOU to logging in and will be using a burner email account. You only want this so you can spam people.

Hey, so a while ago I asked about what improvements you were going to make because this seemed super inconvenient and more than doubled the steps to login.

Today, I got this:

It's my 20th-odd email from docker. Here's the thing...

I don't see any way to edit my profile, opt out, or change the email address (edit: unless I left the box unchecked when I registered. It's opt-in rather than opt-out which isn't so bad if you respect the checkbox, but you still get my email address for your software...) In fact, the only way to unsubscribe (if I checked the box and changed my mind later) is to wait for you to spam me. There's no option to delete my account that I've seen.

I guess what I'm asking is... is this really the user experience you expect us to sign up for? Is this the user interface that you would be happy with for downloading golang or Linux, both of which you depend on heavily? Is this really how you want your product to be seen and remembered?
