Windows "Microsoft recently extended 'It Just Works' compatibility for Visual Basic 6 applications through the full lifetime of Windows 8. Visual Basic 6 first shipped in 1998, so its apps will have at least 24 years of supported lifetime. Contrast that with the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.0 (2002), which is incompatible with Windows 7 (2009)."

WPF and Silverlight are similar to how metro does stuff, Microsoft even has a guide on how to port the code.

Tech evolves. It is better to have something that can be built and ported easily using similar ideas and technologies than WinForms that is a knock off of Swing.
