    In reality, there are other big players out there challenging the dominance of Windows in the open market. For example, we now have the Chromium-based version of the Edge browser.

    I obviously get things like the Messenger app being trash, and things like that, but the UWP platform itself doesn't seem like a bad thing to me.Microsoft has steadily expanded its definition of UWP to allow developers to repackage desktop apps into the Microsoft Store, but the original vision was for new style apps think back to Windows 8 that would run across PCs, phones, tablets, the Xbox, and HoloLens.

    “It's not that UWP is bad, but UWP is not a year-old mature platform that a ridiculously huge amount of apps have been written to,”.I also noticed that some traditional free software, such as Ditto - I use it every day - it published a Windows Store version.

    My UWP app gets a bad review because it can only be installed through Microsoft Store. Interesting observation: my app gets a bad (1) review.Fifa ?

    UWP didn't die because it was a poor framework for app development. It died because it came about at a time when folks no longer care to write.Too many of their partners have too much money on the line to let that happen.

    UWP is bad #55 UWP fails to install apps all the time with ambiguous errors where MS support said "just run troubleshooter".As that influence eroded, the PC industry moved to Steamworks.

    Sweeney is worried that Universal Windows apps could lead to a closed platform. We don't think gamers, devs or publishers will let that.Microsoft has steadily expanded its definition of UWP to allow developers to repackage desktop apps into the Microsoft Store, but the original vision was for new style apps think back to Windows 8 that would run across PCs, phones, tablets, the Xbox, and HoloLens.

    As the name suggests UWP - Universal Windows Platform, Microsoft has tried to club all the platform APIs (Mobile, Desktop, Xbox, etc) into one aka UWP APIs.Even though more than a decade has passed, a considerable number of machines are running the older Windows 7 for whatever reasons.

    It gave birth to the ambitious Universal Windows Platform (UWP), And it's not that UWP is bad, but UWP is not a year-old mature.These platform-independent apps, which run in headless browser windows, work almost like native apps and most of the browsers support them.

    I've had nearly 20 live chats with MS support, and have often created posts on technet, reddit etc.

    forum? Google did publish a Chrome installer, but it was quickly removed by Microsoft citing Store policies.

    On top of that, the various restrictions introduced by the platform also make the situation difficult for developers who are trying to make UWP apps.

    The Windows Store has been full of junk over the years, and Microsoft has had a hard time attracting developers.

    Just ranting here, demanding improvement because no MS staff seem to read those platforms just third party contracted support staff with no technical knowledge outside of copy pasting from the knowledge base.
