    Well, it is still the future, because UWP is also COM vNext, I know Microsoft marketing sucks.

    Do you expect many traditional apps (Win32, Windows Forms, WPF) to use the App Lifecycle API's that will be added in Project Reunion? In the GitHub issue there is mention of a "'good resource citizen' badge". Is this still being considered and how would it work? | 2021-04-06
    Project Reunion is the way we're packaging up new Windows platform and app features for use in all kinds of apps. It's shipping decoupled from Windows instead of as part of a Windows OS release, so that you can use platform-quality features without waiting for your users to update their computers.

    The meta-question here is, I think, is it real? How committed are you? And the answer to that is yes. It's real. It still doesn't have a fancy marketing name like "Windows App .Net 2021 edition Ex2", but it's a real product. We're excited to have our first supported version out in the wild, and we're still running full speed ahead. We talk about that a bit here: | 2021-04-06
    To learn more about the release, watch our community standup with Kevin Gallo discussing the 0.5 SDK. If you’re new to Project Reunion, you can learn more about it on our blog or on GitHub. | 2021-04-06

    There is an open ticket for this here:
  • Which UWP mail client in the future? | 2021-02-07
    It'll still be replaced at some point and Microsoft is going to introduce yet another GUI toolkit and UI look&feel to Windows, just as they started to finally be on a path to towards unification with Project Reunion:
  • All different default windows 10 context menu styles. | 2021-01-26
    WinUI 3 is a new set of standalone libraries and APIs, for newly written apps, or those updated by the programmer to use it. No unification in behavior or technology is going to happen to existing GUI software, not just Win32, but neither for Winforms, .Net, WPF, and older UWP. You might've been misled to be optimistic (as was I) by what they call Project Reunion, but read into it and you'll see they're again writing some new awesome thing for the 27th time, which will probably be left unmaintained in the next couple of years, without ever improving anything much, leaving Windows just a little more bloated again.
  • Microsoft Opens Up Old Win32 APIs to C# and Rust | 2021-01-23
    WinRT is not going anywhere. What more, it's usable from classic Win32 apps these days.

  • Files, a modern file explorer, launches on the Microsoft Store | 2021-01-12
    Sadly, that is not the case. The standard UWP storage apis are absolute garbage compared to the win32 ones. It's well-documented in this (issue)[]. There is an alternative which is faster, FindFirstFileExFromApp, which Files and many other apps use, but it's unreliable.
