Strange things with Debian and npm in WSL. Really slow for some reason. I feel like there's some disconnect when it comes to the network activity.

One thing I can really appreciate though with Powershell is that there's a bunch of aliases from bash tools to the equivalent Powershell cmdlet

@brandon It's probably slow because WSL is just a Linux overlay over Windows.

"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)."
