I just saw this news story for a new Linux subsystem for DOS.
"A WSL alternative for users who prefer an MS-DOS environment. DOS Subsystem for Linux integrates a real Linux environment into MS-DOS systems, allowing users to make use of both DOS and Linux applications from the DOS command prompt."

No idea if this will be of use for future SpinRight development, but it makes DOS a lot more flexible. Although it looks like nothing has been committed to it in a year.
