Does Azure Container Apps support Windows images? If not, will it support them once it goes in GA release?
Is there an estimate for the GA release?

    Hello @user23820 ,

    Thank you for reaching out to the Microsoft Q&A platform. Happy to answer your question.

    Azure Container Apps supports:

    • Any Linux-based x86-64 (linux/amd64) container image
    • Containers from any public or private container registry

    And No, Windows containers are not currently on our roadmap for Azure Container Apps. We definitely appreciate understanding the customer demand and customer scenarios so we can consider the ask for future planning. I have confirmed this by the Container Apps product team internally.
    For any such feedback, I would recommend raising a request at
