WSL executes unmodified Linux ELF64 binaries by emulating a Linux kernel interface on top of the Windows NT kernel. One of the kernel interfaces that it exposes are system calls (syscalls). This post will dive into how syscalls are handled in WSL.

Exactly what it says on the tin.

My experience so far has been that Wine is more compatible with Windows than Windows 10 is ;)

It also feels like a huge compatibility increase occurred in Wine between 2012 and 2014. But maybe it was just happenstance and the specific programs I use.
