@hsluoyz thank you for the request. Docker for Windows contains a lot of integration between the host and the Linux VM which are specific to Hyper-V. Implementing and supporting a similar level of integration for other Hypervisors is a very significant engineering effort. Furthermore, using a different hypervisor would prevent users to use Windows containers and new features such as LCOW, both of which rely on Hyper-V.
For these reasons we currently have no plans to support other hypervisors and I'm closing this issue. Please feel free to continue the conversation here, though.
