      Some examples of USB devices not currently supported: smart cards, bluetooth dongles, connections to smartphones (adb), speakers, etc.

      Incidentally the primary reason I need to use Linux is because UWP Windows Bluetooth does not support "peripheral mode" on a desktop device - even if the underlying dongle supports that mode. IE: improssible to publish attributes and act as a "server" using windows on a desktop machine.

        This was marked completed, but there's still no access to USB serial communications. USB bluetooth dongles, LAN connectors and other peripherals are not directly accessible from Ubuntu.

        One way to do this is to allow the user to selectively bypass Windows recognition of a device, and instead make them available to the linux subsystem.

        Another is to provide services, one service at a time, like mounting usb sticks, and bluez library support.... that call through to Windows api's.

        The first is generic and will work with any USB device. The second is specific to each type of device.
