    I have basically two questions:

    1- Why MAUI is based on Xamarin XAML (which is not popular/used) instead of WPF/UWP which are really much more popular and have been spread all over the Windows ecosystem?
    2- Understood that a web developer will be able to do a desktop app. Cool but how a desktop developer will develop for the web using XAML/C#? In my perspective XAML (from WPF/UWP) is much more organized than using html/css. Are there any plans on supporting XAML (from WPF/UWP) for Blazor server-side development?

    I have seen a general unhappiness from many .NET developers lately to the point that many (including me) are looking for alternatives to .NET.

    You could try cross-platform frameworks like AvaloniaUI for closet to WPF experience. You do not have to use Microsoft toolbox when in .Net.

    Anomynous, unfortunately you didn't answer neither of the questions above, which are of interest of many people, but I will definitely take the advice myself when choosing cloud providers from now on.
    On some things unfortunately the user cannot influence but on others he can. :)
