Based on the instructions on the site, it looks like the next steps are
to build pil on Linux, and then run the linux binary on Windows through

I have not tried pil in WSL yet (my only Windows text machine is Win7),
and I don't think that's a solution for my specific problem (to have a
simple environment for an end user with no technical experience) but I
