Not saying this is a good idea

One big window for VcXsrv. awesomewm for a window manager. Mainly to manage maximized Emacs. There are easier ways to edit files in Windows and WSL. But it renders prettier fonts than VcXsrv with floating windows, so I think I’ll keep it. After I fix all the hotkeys, of course.

I used this post from Paul Silisteanu as a general guide, except apt install awesome awesome-extra for the awesomewm stuff.
