      Anonymous Coward: Microsoft took Windows 7 and backported WinRt. The result they called Windows 10, so go get it. It's just a free Service Pack which you have to run FROM Windows 7, if you will. ;-)

      Other than that, I second every suggestion in this posting!

          Well, Karl, it would be not cross platform, but we could do even better tools to use the cross platform paradigm also in Windows Forms.

          We started already with that: It is called MvvmForms, and you find it on GitHub (https://github.com/ActiveDevException/MvvmForms) and NuGet (MvvmForms). But with Windows Forms open source, we could do even better things!!

          Klaus Löffelmann commented  · 

          Well - the differrence is that Windows Forms is part of the .NET Framework, and many parts of that are changing to be available via NuGet and open source already. On top: Windows Forms is up to date in terms of 64bit, security, and much more. So, the resources Microsoft needed to open source Windows Forms would be much less, and on top Microsoft would benefit from it, because special interest business application had a clear migration path to Windows 10 over years to come. If you make VB6 available, what good is it for Microsoft, because the Apps would stick in an old paradigm or environment.
