Run Kubernetes locally in minutes with Tanzu Community Edition

I became aware of this post less than an hour ago (currently 4PM CDT on May 10th). It describes how to install Tanzu Community Edition (TCE) using the new Docker Extensions functionality in Docker Desktop. I am beyond impressed with how easy it was to get running. I had everything up in 12 minutes, half of which was waiting for Docker to upgrade. The blog post does a great job explaining the TCE deployment process, it worked perfectly for me as-written.

3:24PM Started Docker upgrade to 4.8.1 via Chocolatey
3:30PM Docker upgrade complete
3:31PM Started TCE extension install, took like 10 seconds
3:31PM Began cluster creation
3:36PM Finished cluster creation

My cluster is now ready to go!
