That’s what I was thinking too, but maybe John knows something we don’t. If the goal of being able to build via VSCode is reached, then you can use one machine and do both builds, one for Linux, the other for Windows. I’ve not heard that the Linux version of VSCode can build a Windows binary. (would be great if it could)

As for the GUI, some people have done it, though MS doesn’t support it. (even running GnuCash!) But I haven’t tried it myself. I’m just getting ready to play with Win10 for a client (I don’t use Win systems regularly anymore) so I might give it a go in a month or so.
