When I plug an arbitrary iOS iPad into an arbitrary Linux desktop (Ubuntu
16.04), the file system (that is available to the user) is "mounted" after
a bunch of needlessly repeated "Do you trust this computer" requests on the
iPad, but when I plug those same iPads into an arbitrary Windows 10 desktop
(without iTunes), nothing useful happens.

Why does that work beautifully on Linux, and not at all on Windows?

I don't know, so if someone can answer that basic question, it would be
helfpul for us all.
