OP: A couple years ago I wrote a game in WPF and Silverlight (in parellel). The WPF version works fine, but it used one feature of WPF never implemented in Silverlight

UWP


...and a couple of years later you will be asking the question again.

ms is trying to force the web onto it's [buggy] platform, even going so far as to ramp up their FUD about anything that's not w10/edge/uwp/windows store.
Trying to force pc's onto a phone platform when their own phone failed in the market,
trying to force everything through their store, so they can monetise from YOUR work (to pay for w10),
and once again tellin us the next best thing is just around the corner

Their latest act of kindness was a patch for older unsupported systems against the ransomware trojans, or was it really because they had just done such a piss poor job even they couldn't leave it unfixed?

uwp will improve cosmetically, behind the scenes though it'll still be a cpu/memory hog feature poor hack (and because have to use their store itself in effect a ransomware on your apps and your machine) that offers no advantage over lighter better current well supported platforms.

I would caution against uwp because:
1. it's still not finished - missing features - but you also expect some current features to go away,
2. it's buggy as hell - even common apps like twitter fail regularly on anything beyond light usage,
3. ms will one day demand your first born plus a pound of flesh as payment
Sin tack
the any key okay
