Test-drive the GATK tools and Best Practices pipelines on Terra

Check out this blog post to learn how you can get started with GATK and try out the pipelines in preconfigured workspaces (with a user-friendly interface!) without having to install anything.
We will be out of the office on October 14, 2019, due to the U.S. holiday. We will return to monitoring the forum on October 15.

Do you recommend Windows 7 or 10 for installing and running GATK4 in a Docker Container?

Hello GATK team,
We would like to download and run a Docker container with the latest GATK4 software (or the version used for the GCC-BOSC 2018 Workshop) on a Windows 7 PC with the specifications stated below. Do you recommend we upgrade the OS from Windows 7 to Win 10 Pro 64, which we can easily request our IT professionals to do?

Dell Precision Tower 5810 XCTO Base
Intel Xeon Processor E5-1603 v3 (Four Core, 10MB Cache, 2.8GHz)
64GB (4x16GB) 2400MHz DDR4 RDIMM ECC
1TB 3.5inch Serial ATA (7,200 Rpm) Hard Drive, FPWS
4TB 3.5inch Serial ATA (5.400 Rpm) Hard Drive

Thanks in advance! (my very first post!)
