Want to support running Windows Server 1709 (and later) image
Currently, Azure Container Instances cannot running Windows Server 1709 container image, because running Windows Server 2016 on Azure Container Instances. (I guess that.)
Microsoft said 1709 not supported on Win2016 of Host OS ver as follows:
My feedback: I want to choose Semi-Annual Channe version's host in Azure Container Instances.
Semi-Annual Channe is so nice solution for cloud platform because faster update, include more feature, lightweight images. However some customers want to solid OS like as LTSC. So that. I want to choose both version's host.
Why 1709? 1709's image is more lightweight than LTSC and other Windows images. Container image is strongly to be lightweight, because faster startup, faster download. If I use windows container, I choose latest OS version image, always, personally.
If you want to lightweight and fast image of windows, would you vote to my idea?

Of course this is not stopping anybody from using asp .net core 2.2 on nano server.
I used version 2016 and it runs asp.net core 2.2 too.
The tags page with 2016(1607) images is
The tag I used as runtime is
and the tag I used for build is
Windows Server 1809 is now LTSC
Does it mean that support for it is coming soon?
On Feb 14 you mentioned: in a few months.
On May 29, you just mentioned: Planned.
I need to be able to use the much smaller, much faster and much more reliable 1803 version.
It is October now and still nothing. Can we get an update on this "Planned" status.

Along with the caching issue this is a major blocker for using ACI especially utilizing Windows Based images
