Windows has licence costs.

Could useful results be obtained by running Strawberry Perl or Cygwin perl on Wine on a Linux or BSD host? Or perhaps using ReactOS? Or should those be more properly considered different platforms from "proper" cygwin and mswin32?

    the Wine comparability layer could IMHO introduce problems. I think this sort of thing would simply muddy the waters.

      Yes, but it might also be something worth smoking.

      Perl itself has failing tests (for me) when installing in Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS over Windows Subsystem for Linux. That would also be an interesting platform to smoke.

        Agreed, however they should be reported separately rather than combined with mswin32 results.
