People are interested in Linux on Windows via WSL, especially given the new fully virtualized Linux kernel in WSL 2. It's interesting to know whether registered SUSE installations might be running in WSL as opposed to other Microsoft virtualization platforms, but the current approach taken by SUSEConnect (the client for SUSE Customer Center) does not permit this.

By inspecting the contents of /proc/, it is possible to tell these platforms apart. This project aims to enhance SUSEConnect to do so.
