Unfortunately it seems like QEMU is even more unstable on Windows, than on macOS. And that is after the all the compromises needed, to work around the OS shortcomings

Then again, it is Open Source so the way to make it better is to start using it… But it will be more for early adopters. Maybe I will put my experiments up on a branch or fork, if anyone else wants to continue with it
The Unix sockets are the biggest issue (the named pipes are broken, and using tcp “requires” implementing TLS and certs and all that stuff - like 2376 vs 2375). But we can use “null” and “http” (no tls) for experiments. The paths and line feeds are annoying, but not fatal
Fixing Ubuntu under WHPX is probably a good idea as well, even if Alpine works

Thanks for experiments. Maybe somebody should submit a pull request to QEMU and OpenSSH to support AF_UNIX? I think I heard Windows implementation of AF_UNIX isn’t fully compatible with other Unix-like operating systems though.

I guess there is no prospect of getting vsock support in qemu, is there?
We use vsock between WSL2 and Win32 because unlike TCP sockets, they don't require changes to firewall rules to allow the traffic.

I believe that is feasible but I’m not aware of anyone working on that
