xamarin docker hyper-v

On Windows 10 and current Visual Studio 2017 15.2 and 15.3 preview tooling there is no single machine supported workflow for developing and debugging apps that target Docker-based services projects and Xamarin client projects concurrently. That is to say, Docker services must exist in Hyper-V, and Xamarin clients if Android-based, must run in HAXM emulators for Nougat and later, since the Hyper-V based emulators have sadly been deprecated. Please bring back and make current the Hyper-V emulators for Android, or allow Hyper-V to coexist with HAXM VMs... somehow.

    Yes, this is ridiculous. I work on projects that need docker support and I also work on projects that need Xamarin. To have to keep enabling an disabling Hyper-V and rebooting is not workable.
