So I got tox and tox-docker installed. When I went to install Docker for Windows, it wouldn't work because Hyper-V wasn't available on Windows 10 Home. After paying Microsoft $99 for the privilege, I got Windows 10 Pro installed and Docker started working. I've read that all the cool programming kids are using Docker these days. I certainly hope it was worth the cost. O_o
