OpenShift, Minishift, VirtualBox

Excellent VERY quick introduction to OpenShift:

I am following this nice introduction to OpenShift with github

Download and install VirtualBox

Install Docker

Download and unzip Minishift

If you get this error

.\minishift.exe start
-- Installing default add-ons ... OK
-- Checking if Hyper-V driver is configured ... FAIL
   Hyper-V virtual switch is not set

it means that maybe Docker is not installed

When I try to install Docker, it tells me "HyperV is not available on Home editions, please use Docker Toolbox" - which uses Oracle VirtualBox instead of HyperV

Since I have Windows 10 Home and I don't want to waste 170 USD to buy Windows Enterprise, I am installing Docker Toolbox but it still doesn't work... it seems that really only the Windows 10 PRO using Hyper-V works.... what a waste of time to try to make stuff work on Windows...
