ACI compatible with linux and windows?

So the most widely used container software I know today is docker. Docker can be installed either on Linux or windows, but a windows container will not run on a linux docker server a vise versa. Is Azure container instances (ACI) compatible with either windows or linux containers?

Hi Eric, "Azure Container Instances can schedule both Windows and Linux containers with the same API. Simply specify the OS type when you create your container groups." (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/container-instances/container-instances-overview). 

Basically is supporting the hosting of both OS inside the ACI. Is it answering your question?
