Exactly. And some people may not have the options of either time, ability, 
access, or other resources to set up that stuff. Oh, and there are all of 
the open-source projects on winsoze that use native-code ffmpeg libraries....

I -have- the ability to install WSL/Hyper-V/etc but have no earthly reason 
to. Actually, there are reasons not to. (OTOH, I do have msys2/mingw64 on a 
couple of machines specifically for building windize -native- executables, 
and not just ffmpeg.)

Second-guessing people's run-time platform requirements usually isn't helpful.
