With Windows Phone completely dead right now, my personal opinion of UWP / .NET Native is that it's a huge pain in the ass and not worth using at the moment except for very limited use cases. I'm personally of the opinion that WPF is a better solution for *almost* every application with many less "gotchas". As you've noted, you can still get it into the store with their converter.

The thing that really kills UWP for me is lack of emit and code gen, which I use extensively. Reflection also becomes painful.

The desktop to store app converter is pretty brilliant. It's great.

I wish they would kill UWP / .NET Native and put the resources into coming up with a better solution that doesn't rely on native compilation. Android seems to be doing just fine without it.
