WSL will not mount an ext4 SD card. It can mount ext4 hard drives. Not flash drives. Because MS sucks.
but

VMWare causes the most obnoxious repeating beep sound, gets itself locked up, locks the mouse cursor inside its window, and keeps beeping even after I kill the task, forcing me to reboot.

VirtualBox will not share the clipboard from host->device, will not mount my remote filesystem, and will not function as though it was written by competent people.

Surely there's a market out there for VM software that isn't awful. Am I the only one that wants a functioning VM out there?
