Any Unix-like OS could serve as a base for Unix based development tools (they were designed for Unix in the first hand, they could have been ported to Windows but the ported version sucks), e.g: git, svn and definitely docker. Docker is the killer feature. FreeBSD jail could be think as an equivalent. But the most important is, nowadays when we said Unix-like we mean Linux. These people will run Linux anyway if WSL is not available. WSL is just to keep them working on Windows but could use Linux based tools. Just that.
