Microsoft probably uses glibc (as the subsystem seems to be canonical-made and they use glibc in ubuntu), for os x, I'm not sure what is being used. See https://itsfoss.com/install-bash-on-windows/ https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/microsoft-linux-distros-windows-10/ https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=3601092 In either case, Rich, perhaps you can propose to both that they use musl, and point them to your comparison (http://www.etalabs.net/compare_libcs.html ) ? Also, perhaps that comparison can have Bionic added too and compared to that as well ? Perhaps it's most appropriate to do this through posting an issue at their relevant repo's (for MS, it's https://github.com/microsoft/WSL2-Linux-Kernel/issues , for apple (https://github.com/apple ), I'm not sure which repo holds the libc.
