A big announcement out of MSBuild was the support for Windows desktop applications (Winforms, WPF) on .NET Core 3. This came as a surprise to many because Microsoft had deemed UWP to be the Windows platform of choice. It seems that Microsoft has changed their mind but if you look at the history of Core this really shouldn’t be much of a surprise.
