"But it's harder than it looks."

Yes all these whizzy on message alternatives such as Electron, Flutter, Uno, Avalonia etc look great until you look seriously into creating a meaty application, not just a simple PoC. You then realise that you're in relatively uncharted waters and anyone of the myriad of technical hurdles you'll have to overcome could literally cause the whole project to fail. Contrast that with WPF (and Winforms) where any problems you have can usually be solved by a quick Google - although actually the problem with WPF is that there are often too many solutions, and many of them are ridiculously arcane for your average Joe Bloggs dev to understand.
