I would assume that this would be some sort of automatic handoff between the Windows task launcher and the Linux subsystem.
But as far as I know, such a think doesn't work now.

Docker jobs running on Windows is not currently something we support, and adding support is not on our near term work list.
Running Windows jobs on Linux will probably work for some jobs - but I don't really know a lot about WINE, so I can't really be helpful there.

If I get WINE on Linux and Docker on Windows I might be able to run the Linux compiled jobs on windows nodes (hopefully with Docker) and Windows compiled jobs on Linux nodes (hopefully with WINE), is it something feasible or the entropy will take things over?

Although Microsoft has said they plan to change that â and for running Windows on Linux there is WINE â but HTCondor does not do anything special to make jobs run in a cross-platform way. It is up to you to specify Requirements so that you jobs will only match machines that the jobs can run on â and to install cross-platform software on your execute nodes if necessary.
