I would like to answer your title in a simple sentence: UWP is, in no way, better than WPF. Period.

Then, as for your for articles, come on man! Keep them coming. Smile | :) The thing is, that entire of the Windows Runtime was developed on top of async/await pattern, now that pattern requires a lot of configuration, the configuration of the way we think, we develop, we debug, and we release the application. Not the configuration of software etc. There is nothing different, or confusing. If you want to be a better developer at Windows Runtime, I recommend be a hardcore async/await developer. I mean it.

1) Didn't they have problems with Windows 8, Windows 8.1? How about Aero effects? How about the other versions. People don't like change. And developers, they hate change. Because, at least for me, we have to change or upgrade, or migrate or sometimes rebuild everything just because SDK changed.
2) I don't have Hypervisor as I don't like it. I personally prefer VirtualBox, and as for testing, I consider writing good code, instead of breaking a live or virtual app. Smile | :)
