[petsc-dev] alternatives to cygwin on Windows with PETSc

I played around with WSL1 quite some time ago and it seemed pretty promising. I have not tried WSL2, but I'm guessing that it may be the best option for building PETSc on a Windows 10 machine. I've got a Windows 10 machine (it basically just runs my television/media center) and I'll give it a try on there.

  Does it make sense to recommend/suggest  git bash for Windows as an alternative/in addition to Cygwin?

I would love to be able to recommend git-bash and/or WSL2 (which now
includes a full Linux kernel).  I don't have a system on which to test,
but it should be possible to make it work (if it doesn't already).
