Well, that is one possibility but I just got docker working and apparently
there's a pretty automated way to convert a docker image to a wsl2 one so
I'm going to take a stab at that.

WSL2 seems to be a fair bit lighter weight than a full blown VM.   I guess
it's kind of a hybrid between a container and a VM.

If I don't get this soon, I guess I'm going to whip out the external hard
drive, save off all my important stuff, and go full Guix native then spin
up windows in VMs when I need it, but I have little doubt configuration of
some of these windows programs (which drive hardware) will probably be a
whole nother headache!
