Any software add-on which aims to "replace Cygwin" will have to
address each and every use case for which Cygwin is currently chosen

Windows Subsystem For Linux sounds like a great idea though, usability
reports would be read with interest by the majority of users on this
list,as well as what "WSFL" can (and cannot) do vis-a-vis Cygwin.
