I'd certainly recommend migrating to Microsoft's Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL).  As a long-time Interix user, I waited until WSL got past its 'version 1' period, and find that WSL 2 is really quite good.  It also has "mindshare" within MSFT (built inside, not acquired), so seems well supported – finally.

Interix was a valliant effort, good for many – if not most – purposes (including graphical GUI apps if you run a 3rd-party X-server), but its been surpassed by WSL 2.

Thank you. I am more interested in Interix for curiosity/historical reasons rather than anything practical however.
