    > docker desktop is pretty dead now that it's got restrictive licensing etc...

    It would probably be nice to hear more about why you think this is! I've certainly heard of some having to move away from Docker Desktop.

    However, at the scale where you need a license (250 employees or 10 million $ in annual revenue) it's not quite as big of an issue, especially at their current pricing per seat: https://www.docker.com/pricing/

    > stick to standard open source tools like Colima etc...

    Sticking to open source is a great idea!

    I think mentioning that Colima runs on macOS and Linux only at the moment is also a good idea: https://github.com/abiosoft/colima

    A large market share of the Docker Desktop installs are Windows in particular (since it's "the one way" how most install Docker nowadays, as opposed to not really needing a GUI or the supporting tools on Linux).

    In another comment I mentioned Podman Desktop as a mostly viable alternative: https://github.com/containers/podman-desktop

    Then there's also Rancher Desktop as well: https://github.com/rancher-sandbox/rancher-desktop

    Regardless, it's nice to see reputable orgs behind the open source projects as well, which gives a bit more credence to their chances of surviving for the years to come.

    Great, then can you speak to whether rancher-desktop supports the "--platform" argument to "run" the same way that finch does?

    I wouldn't mind answering it myself, but it looks like rancher-desktop is an electron something or other: https://github.com/rancher-sandbox/rancher-desktop/blob/v1.6... and even downloading the 500MB release zip shows that there's `Rancher Desktop.app/Contents/Resources/resources/darwin/lima/bin/limactl` hidden in it, but I'm a distrustful sort and I don't want to crawl through unlimited lines of typescript to find out what this is going to do to my system

    Maybe it's just that I'm not the right audience for this, since I am the polar opposite of "some gui fanciness," as I came up through the docker-machine universe, and now colima, and thus have a lot more comfort debugging CLI tooling when something inevitably goes toes up
