So, my perspective here is quite simple: Use the appropriate tool for the job. It's been the year of "Linux on the Desktop" for what, 15 years now, and it has not happened - that indicates to me that the userspace applications are simply Not There. Wine is a crutch at best, and not a good one. So is, in the other direction, WSL, as much as I love the idea. As for the Free Software attitude of "if what you want is not supported, fix that," most people have neither the ability nor the time nor the inclination to write up that code themselves, nor the resources to hire a professional to do it for them. I am a lifelong systems admin and home user of computers, and quite frankly, unless I am expressly working on something new, I expect my tools to Just Work. I have no more patience for a program I need to get into the guts of and rewrite the code for than I would have for rewiring my oven every time I want to cook something different.
