Is it not the case that M$ now provides bash as some available package?
I was thinking the new Chief Factotum at M$ was more open to embracing
Linux than Bill G and this guy https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XMrhoOHNOrI

Whether the majority would want to or not is not as certain.  I would
expect the average M$ user would not want to, but then again, the
average M$ user has never heard of TeX.  So once you narrow down to M$
users who use TeX, you have narrowed down to quite a different group
of people.  In my limited experience, anyway.
