    Also, they ripped out the host builder from Maui app builder so it is an odd duck from what I can tell. All the flexible config we have that works with winforms, wpf, and the web will take a rewrite to work with MAUI. It similar, but too much friction At the moment.

    Microsoft stopped development (more or less) around May 2020 to focus on MAUI, which was released in November 2020.

    Actually it wasn’t - MAUI wasn’t released until May 2022, tooling was just released July 2022 for Windows, and VS for Mac with proper support has yet to be released. If you’re used to command line that may not seem like a big deal, but the whole point of the .NET ecosystem is that you have a rich set of tools that saves time and enhances developer productivity.

    So as for why Xamarin wasn’t discussed for the last few years, it’s probably because Microsoft put it in a coma for 2 years.

    I was hoping MAUI would fix a lot of the quality issues, but like any big rewrite, it seems to have traded one set of problems for another. The developer experience is better, but there are lots of bugs in basic functionality that make it difficult to use. I don’t think Microsoft has enough engineers assigned to this project to make it successful.

    If you don’t care about the quality of your app (e.g. your a corporate form developer and don’t care about your users) MAUI is a great choice. But if you don’t care about the UX, web technologies are almost certainly a better choice.

    As for native desktop, you’d have to be really stupid to choose WinUI or UWP, unless the point of the app is to be a WinUI or UWP demo. WPF is fine, but then why on earth would you choose that over electron or WebView2, which solves some of the resource problems from pure electron.

    All of this is coming from someone whose entire career is built on .NET client technology… I was really hoping (and still hope) for a turnaround. I bet big on Xamarin being the right approach; I still think it is, but Microsoft really dropped the ball since the acquisition.

    They could also just use flutter which is skia under the hood - I think would be substantially faster than dealing with Xamarin.

    Doing stuff with Skia on MAUI at least is tricky because there is no concept of a mouse, so good luck creating a hover effect on your button.

    Have a look at this:

    if you have been following bugs in xamarin you would have known. It's good that you haven't encounter any that's blocking, but for those who did it's very frustrating

    it seems like it's catching up to MAUI as well, look at the number of issues that's growing for the past 4 months...

    Then I also found this but they're experiencing a slightly different problem and I think using a ScrollView instead of a Grid.
