Getting docker running on Ubuntu on Windows is pretty simple. After installing the Docker Windows engine and restarting, run this in a bash session to bind the two together:

export DOCKER_HOST=tcp://

Pop this into your .bashrc and never think about it again.

Thanks to this StackOverflow post for the tip.
