First of all I love Proxmox with KVM and LXC, but for quick testing solutions for my work I need to be able to run Docker.
Simply because some solutions are only available as Docker container and I don't have time to install an application completely manual.

Any recommendation for and easy to install Linux server operating system which includes Docker and a web-based orchestration application for the containers.
Intention is to run it in a virtual machine Proxmox. I found Rancher OS, but functionally that is not maintained any more.
Open to options for an virtual appliance incl. OS, docker, and orchestrations or something which is know to easily install together. For orchestration I found Portainer and Rancher. Rancher looks more open at first side. Web-based orchestration is strongly preferred.

Any recommendations?

Your question is really completely outside of the forum's topic of "Proxmox VE: Installation and configuration".
The answer to your question is entirely based on personal preference and experience. I suspect some even like to run Docker on Windows.

Use google search string "best os to run docker" and enjoy all the spirited discussions.

Try Portainer Community Edition or Portainer Enterprise. Portainer Enterprise is also lifetime free for up to 5 nodes for a few months.

mind that portainer.io is only web-based orchestration , not a appliance/docker runtime env
