heh.  here's what I read:

I used to run a Xubuntu box for a while (back in the Pentium age) and
know /exactly/ what you mean.   apt-getting flex, getting 'nocomment'
from the server, typing make would have taken me, uh, I don't know, two
and a half minutes?  I mean, who in today's world has that much time on
their hands?

'may' to me means "hadn't given it any thought yet", understandable
since the utilities likely aren't of any interest to you.
however, I cannot fathom why you're so keen to tell about the wonderful
"Windows subsystem for Linux" -- twice -- with all the "might"s and
"should"s, when not even yourself is using it for the purpose you
suggest.  is that a "Windows thing"?
