In the docs for the asyncio event loop, it has a note on page:

"Note The default asyncio event loop on Windows does not support subprocesses. See Subprocess Support on Windows for details."

Then following the link in that note to:
"On Windows, the default event loop ProactorEventLoop supports subprocesses, whereas SelectorEventLoop does not."

So the issue is, there are conflicting statements about default support for asyncio subprocesses on Windows. It seems the first statement listed above, is wrong or outdated since the default event loop on Windows is the ProactorEventLoop which does support subprocesses.

Thank you!
