      But it's Linux' trojan horse to destroy windows. :P

        "multiuser windows" is an oxymoron. Windows was never really intended for multiuser environments from the get-go and has been poorly adapted to it over the decades.

          What if Git just stops providing support for Windows because WSL is so easy to use now?

            That was true for windows for workgroups and the 9x/Me series. NT and its descendants have had multiuser support from the get go.

              Exactly. The problem during the last two decades wasn't Windows NT itself, but rather applications that were written with a single-user mindset - typically legacy software from Window 9x.

                Pointing out Windows has desirable features (and lots of them), does not make one a "Windows defender". At least I think it shouldn't.
                Windows was built for desktops and at some point it moved onto servers. Linux was built for server and migrated to the desktop. It's pretty clear where the strong and weak points lie for each OS.

                  And what if every other software in existence also followed suit.

                    I'm not sure about the level of support for GUI apps, but command line stuff could do that just fine.
