    The problem is that "win32" is much larger than just win32.  Look at the following site that outlines all the things you need for desktop compatibility:

    Some of these will never be moved into a UWP environment.  And many many LOB apps depend on this stuff.  WinRT started out with a couple of hundred API calls -- now it has thousands, and even with all that it is a small fraction of what goes under the rubric of "win32".  Some stuff like COM, DCOM, COM+ fly in the face of security considerations underlying the winrt API. 

    Business/financial considerations will determine that most legacy apps will never move to the winrt API.  I too have no suggestions, but if you want to play in the enterprise space, backwards compatibility is a must.
