I'm the original author and de-facto maintainer of that Dockerfile.  I assume 
I'm also the sole user, based on the lack of questions about it.

My experience is that it's more stable than VirtualBox, and I can more easily 
keep my source backed up (because it's in my host filesystem, not the VM 
filesystem), but the performance of accessing the host filesystem is mightily 
disappointing (unlike on Linux hosts).

If anyone is reading this and thinking of trying it, you might be better off 
encouraging me to publish some of the private changes I've been testing, rather 
than trying what's in Federico's repo.  I tend to slack off in that regard 
because no one is asking.
