Hello @rodrigc!
I was wondering if it is possible to run FreeBSD Docker on top of Linux, like it is possible to run Linux on top of Windows via Docker (because boot2docker on Windows actually installs a light weight linux kernel and then runs VMs on top of it). I found the answer on docker channel (https://gitter.im/docker/docker?at=55dd75b704a673003162bd4d) that there is no such port.
Would be nice to have a slim FreeBSD kernel packed with docker to run docker though.. Not sure how complicated this problem is, but going by the boot2docker Windows example, it is not something impossible.
Use-case: Library devs need to build release builds without bothering to configure VMs for every combination of every operating system etc.

Helo @jasonwilliams200OK!
Your question was answered at https://gitter.im/docker/docker?at=55dd75b704a673003162bd4d by jjn2009. It does not look like it is possible to run FreeBSD Docker on top of Linux
Linux docker on top of FreeBSD looks like it is being worked on and experimental: wiki.freebsd.org/Docker
