Yeah, me too.
I still have one customer who has a WinForms application.
I didn't make it, but I'm maintaining it.
Just last week I wrote a Console app, it just need to check for some files to mail every few minutes and it HAD to run on a local Exchange server.
Other than that it's all web nowadays.
Although I did speak to a potential customer earlier this year who needed software to interface with (label)printers, scanners and possibly other hardware.
A web app isn't going to do that, so it's either WinForms or an alternative.
I don't really see the added value of WPF except that it can do some nice graphical stuff that I don't need, Java is out of the question, and I'm not sure if an alternative like Electron has the same maturity as WinForms.
The guy put everything on hold because of COVID-19, but if he ever decided to continue that project and I get to be the one that writes it, I may go for WinForms.
You'll probably be wanting all the NPM libraries bundled with your update I imagine...
Not everyone has a fast broadband, I am lucky enough to have 100Mbps download but I imagine most of the world has a much much slower download speed.

Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?

As for me after downloading and installing the update, I open Visual Studio and it's still the same version as before. So I have to again download and install, this time it tells me I have to restart my computer.
I've had issues like that on 2 different computers, where I download and install VS and still it's not updated. What I would usually do is redownload the installer.
Installing VS 2019 v 16.6 right now... By far not fully installation, almost nothing on web, nothing on big data, nothing on other OS's
Still almost 60 Gb space needed.
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
