What’s really wrong with Win32?


Okay, people. Let’s put the cards on the table. I want cogent, detailed reasons why we have to move on from Win32 and/or .NET to whatever the next thing may be (UWP, or whatever).

Not trying to start any flames or war here either. 🙂

But I’m going through it in my own mind, and I’m not satisfied with just “out with the old, in with the new.” Or nebulous reasons like “Win32 was for another era.”

I was hoping we could shed light on the real technical reasons.

And I say this as someone who just recently published a simple game to the Windows 10 Store, a UWP app. Thing is, I wrote it in Clickteam Fusion, and it created the Visual Studio project for me. All I had to do was package it. I didn’t see the nuts and bolts.

Come on now, don’t be shy. Speak up! 🙂
