[dba-Tech] Running Docker Windows and Linux Containers Simultaneously

I run Unraid on an AMD Ryzen 2600 with 32 gigs ram. In a few months I
fully expect to buy a 16 core 32 thread Ryzen 3700 to replace the 2600.
Unraid currently has about 6 tb, with about 4 tb of that used by my
video and music collection. I have a 1tb NVME SSD unassigned, which I
use to host my VMs and docker containers, and a 240gb SSD unassigned for
use with my Windows VM.
I have a Windows 10 pro VM which currently sports 3 cores / 6 threads
and 8 gb RAM. I have passed through my AMD RX580 GPU as well as a 240gb
SSD, keyboard and mouse. I use this as a Python development machine,
with TeamViewer running so that I can remote in from my laptop when I am
away from my house. Eventually I will be doing machine learning / AI on
this machine using the passed through graphics card (maybe?) and python.
I have a Linux Mint VM sporting 2 cores / 4 threads and 8 gb ram. It
also runs TeamViewer. I just use this machine to learn about Linux / Mint.
The remaining core and memory is left to Unraid.
I have a Plex Media Server DOCKER serving up my extensive video and
I have a MySQL Docker for learning MySQL. I use SQLite on the Windows
VM with Python for most quick and dirty database things as I learn
Python. BTW Python really rocks! The more I use it, the more I learn
about it, the better I like it.
Unraid is a bit of a stretch particularly for a non-Linux guy like
myself. However it has a good active community and some really good
youtube videos for getting some things set up. It provides quite a
powerful and relatively easy to set up system for doing the VM / Docker
