Add gnumeric support for WSL

It would be nice if I could apt install gnumeric.
Gnumeric is the only application I really miss on windows.

        Thanks for the answer, I did install it.
        (I just needed an apt update, I don't know why this is not done when you first install ubuntu)
        There are some rounding issues in gnumeric, which do not exist on a pure ubuntu.
        I don't know who should fix that: WSL developpers or Gnumeric developpers?

        You can apt install it. There are very few things you can't install with apt anymore. Running it is a different story. What you want is native GPU support. See Uservoice for Libsixel and Libgl as well as OpenCL/CUDA and vote on those. In the meantime, what you can do is install VcxSrv and enable multi-window mode and also in bash, do a export DISPLAY=:0. Now run gnumeric, it will *work*. If there is some functionality of it that doesn't work, submit an issue on https://github.com/Microsoft/WSL
