Bug description:

   * Ubuntu in WSL does not detect the PulseAudio or X11 server running
  on Windows. Detecting them is easy and doing so improves the setup

  [Test Case]

   * Install and start PulseAudio for Windows ( )
   * Install and start an X11 server for Windows ( )
   * Start the Ubuntu WSL terminal
   * Make sure pulseaudio is not installed:
     $ pulseaudio

     Command 'pulseaudio' not found, but can be installed with:

     apt install pulseaudio

   * Install mpg321 and x11-utils inside Ubuntu and run xeyes and play an MP3 
     $ sudo apt install x11-utils mpg321
     $ xeyes
     $ mpg321 foo.mp3

   * Install pulseaudio
     $ sudo apt install pulseaudio
   * Close all Ubuntu WSL sessions
   * Start the Ubuntu WSL terminal again
   * Play an MP3 again, it should still work

  [Regression Potential]

   * Since the detection takes place in setting the profile mistakes in
  the implementation may trigger errors show to the users on login.
