Q0: Where is the line of topicality where WSL is involved?
Q1: Now that Ubuntu can be run on Windows using WSL, I see many questions about windows-subsystem-for-linux Are these questions a better fit for a Windows-oriented site? If the problem is contained entirely on the Ubuntu side, I'd expect it's reasonable to ask here, as discussed in this question – Do we consider "Ubuntu on Windows 10" the same as an official Ubuntu flavour? Do we support it? To what extent?
Q2: But what if the problem is getting WSL working at all? That is, it involves the Windows side. For instance, this question appears to be about a problem with the Windows Store that may have nothing to do with Ubuntu: Cannot Install Ubuntu 18.04 WSL
Q3: I've been informed that "if you're using Ubuntu and trying to get it to do something, then you can ask about it here." So suppose I'm using Ubuntu on WSL, and I want to use it to process data from a Windows program. However, I can't get the program installed and working. This also appears to be entirely on the Windows side, independent of Ubuntu. However, since the intent is to use Ubuntu to process the data, would such a question about this scenario be appropriate here? For instance, this question is about accessing Windows-created Windows – Accessing Windows Display via WSL X Server
Note: I don't use WSL, so likely won't be asking or answering any questions like these. I'm curious about the rationale for drawing the line at various positions.
