Using the linux subsystem on windows for building libreoffice for windows

Good Afternoon, 

I have started and found out how to work with the linux subsystem on
windows. Has anyone tried to use it as an alternative to mingw to build
for windows? 

I have noticed and observed that its based on ubuntu but I am not sure
what version. Would this be something that is worth looking into if it
means that there is potential to use a linux system to build natively on
windows itself?
