When completing the installation of Docker Desktop 4.25, the Advanced Settings offers a choice:
Choose how to configure the installation of Docker's CLI tools:
System (requires password)
Docker CLI tools are installed under /usr/local/bin.
Docker CLI tools are installed under $HOME/.docker/bin. Note: You need to manually add $HOME/.docker/bin to your PATH. Learn more
Being new to Linux & Docker, I would like to know the trade-offs between these two options.
I am guessing from the "System" name that the first option would make the CLI tools available to all users on this host OS. In contrast, I assume the second option would make the CLI tools available on to my particular user, not other users on the host OS. The user-specific install is already privileged, so no superuser password needed, while the all-users option does require a superuser password. Is this correct?
Are there any other ramifications to choosing one option over the other?
I did read the documentation. But that doc offers little guidance, with no pros and cons.
I am using macOS Sonoma 14.1 on a MacBook Pro, M1 Pro chip.
