We are working with our data center to make Windows Server 2016
available as soon as possible. When it's Generally Available (GA)
in mid-October it would take us few more weeks after that to bring
Server 2016 hosts online.

I would be happy with just the docker daemon running on the machine so that I could spin up a windows server core or nano docker image. This means I would require that the windows docker daemon is running on the machine, rather than the linux daemon and I believe at current the windows daemon to be able to run windows docker images is currently only in beta. See here for more info: https://stefanscherer.github.io/run-linux-and-windows-containers-on-windows-10/
We are also looking forward to server 2016 because with 2012 the opengl drivers are too low to run our tests. I'm not sure if you're considering release the 2016 image with limited software? For us we'd need visual studio as well as the python versions.
