As explained with details in:

SuperOTC format font packages are only supported under recent MacOS 10.8/iOS7,
Linux fontconfig and freetype, and W10 1703 releases or later;

OTC format font packages are only supported under recent MacOS 10.8/iOS7, Linux
fontconfig and freetype, and W10 1607 releases or later;

Multilingual/Language-specific OTF, OTC, and SuperOTC format font packages are
only usable by apps supporting the OpenType GSUB table locl feature tag;

otherwise only Region-specific OTF format font packages may be usable.

This is mentioned without the support details in:

so there may be limitations on which of these alternatives may be deployed and
used, depending on how much, if any, Cygwin components depend on Windows font
handling, for command line (e.g. gnuplot, R, octave) and X Window graphics apps,
and each app's OpenType support for language, script, and feature tags.

Take care. Thanks, Brian Inglis, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
