QuestionIs anyone actually using Win UI 3 (and if not that, then what?) Pin

An informal survey here to find out if anyone is actually using Win UI 3 in a real commercial application that people pay for?

I'm sure there are plenty of LOB apps and personal projects etc., but I mean is anyone using it for anything serious that they expect to make money off of? A bet-the-company flagship product?

Three years after release, compared to WPF it's buggy, inflexible, and poorly supported (by Microsoft or by the community - try running a search to find something Win UI 3 specific and seeing how much UWP or WPF content you have to sift through).

I badly need to move off of WPF for its being nearly 20 years old and unsupported, but I find WinUI 3 to be essentially unusable. It suffers from the ultimate problem that nearly all Microsoft development technologies suffer from - because they don't use it to develop their own consumer products, it - at best - isn't a strategic priority, or - at worst - it's deliberately crippled to make sure their own products can't be edged out.

I'm tempted to just use DirectComposition and build an entirely homegrown UI framework, which I then at least can control and debug. I'm almost certian this is what all the major development shops (including Microsoft) do for their flagship products. What other options are there at this point really?
