    Windows UI Library: the latest Windows 10 native controls and Fluent styles for your applications

    If you want to make a great Mac or iOS app, you know what look you’re trying to go for, and you have very good choices of system controls to use. If you make a Windows app, do you want to go with WinForms (doesn’t work well on modern systems, kind of gets Windows 11 look for some controls), WPF (rock solid, looks like shit and needs a lot of customization work), UWP (unreliable, poorly maintained, lots of weird issues, unofficially killed, halfway between windows 10 and 11), or WinUI (looks like windows 11 even on windows 10, less mature and therefore even less reliable than UWP, will literally crash your app if you right click in a textbox)?
