Hey Peter,

I don't think this is planned as of today, however, seeing snaps working
on the Linux Windows subsystem would be indeed really interesting! The
issue with elecctron apps is that they touch a big part of the technical
stack (graphics, access to various files, javascript sandboxed engine…).
I don't think that will be the easiest one.

I think running some lxd ubuntu-core system containers would help at
least as a first steps on supported platform for web service.
