Because to run a Linux version of Hatari I would need to install X under
the Linux subsystem and an X server under Windows. That all can be done,
of course, but it can be avoided by (cross-)compiling a Windows version.

Besides: What's the recommended way of building the Windows version of
Hatari, anyway? Back when I ranted how difficult it was getting it to
build natively on Windows, I was told that cross-compiling under Linux
was the way to go. In contrast, you're saying cross-compilation is "not
really good" when using CMake.
