Well, Paul Thurrott's been following the company for decades. I registered to read the full article on the site, and his arguments seem to boil down to:
Quote:
Put simply, Microsoft is moving to open its previously sheltered UWP/modern Windows 10 capabilities to all developers, including those that understandably wish to ignore the lackluster Microsoft Store. And new APIs, like Windows Vision Skills, now in preview, will likewise be open from the get-go, and support all “Windows applications (.NET, Win32, and UWP).”
and the previously quoted:
Quote:
From what I can see, the future of native apps on Windows has very little to do with the Microsoft Store. That said, I don’t expect the Store to disappear. I do very much expect for UWP to disappear, however, especially on the Windows desktop. And for Microsoft Store to continue to be irrelevant to most users, and to most developers.

He's also pointing out how few talks at Build seem to be aimed specifically at UWP devs:
Quote:
In State of the Union: The Windows Presentation Platform, for example, you can learn how Microsoft is “evolving the Windows platform by enabling consistent desktop UI/UX across UWP, Win32, and .NET.” Which do you think is more relevant to Microsoft’s developer base?

Still, all circumstantial, but I see little need or desire to move to UWP. At least as a primary target.
