Desktop isn't all that consistent.

Spotify uses its own skin, as does Windows iTunes. NetBeans uses Swing with the Nimbus look-and-feel. Firefox and Chrome use their own toolkits (e.g. on their Settings windows). Even Microsoft Word feels like 'its own thing'. UWP applications don't tend to feel native. At least RoboMongo and the CMake GUI feel like proper Windows applications, but they both use Qt.

Registration is open for Startup School 2019. Classes start July 22nd.
