Thanks for the suggestion.
The biggest overhaul to the Console’s innards in more than 30 years is currently underway. UTF-8 support is something that we are and will be working on in order to support a much broader set of scenarios, platforms, clients and tools.
Just one example of the level of improvements being made include all the Virtual Terminal sequence support added to the Console during Win10AU to support many *NIX tools, along with the new 24-bit color support we released in today’s Insiders build #14931.
Stay tuned for lots more improvements coming in future insiders and major releases.
We hear ya. Though this item originally asked for improvements to the Console, which as per my prior response, are underway, with more improvements coming in future Windows releases.
If you'd like to also ask the Win32 API team to consider supporting UTF-8, please create another ask in the appropriate area. This way, the appropriate teams can hear and respond more specifically to your asks.
CSS Box Alignment is now on the Microsoft Edge backlog. You can track the status at https://dev.modern.ie/platform/status/boxalignment/

WSL currently only works on x64 systems, and only runs ELF-64 binaries.
We don’t currently have plans to support running ELF-32 binaries on WSL x64.
@Thomas: You should be able to cross-compile to whatever target output your compilers generate, but you'll need to run the generated binaries on the target platforms (e.g. an x86 / ARM device).
@chris: The "arm" prefix likely means this is an ARM binary, which won't run on an x86 processor.
