    Question Nautilus on Windows using Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications

    I really have NO idea where to put this. I don't think Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications is virtualization, but I could be wrong. Please spare me if this is in the wrong place.

    I just installed Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications (SUA) on my Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit PC. I would REALLY like to be able to use the nautilus file manager using SUA, but I have no clue how to even begin. I tried reading the SUA documentation, but it went right over my head. Google didn't help either, probably because I don't know what to search for.

    But I'm not completely ignorant. I've used Ubuntu before, and I continue to use it as a backup OS, so I know a little.

    So how would I go about installing Nautilus in SUA? I want it to act pretty much like the prepackaged Nautilus in Ubuntu.

    Or am I doing this completely wrong? Is there a way to use GTK or something to get Nautilus? Should I even bother with SUA? I've already pretty much figured out that SUA is not just the reverse of Wine.
