It's often difficult even for companies like microsoft and google to change the industries, even those they helped to create. For years microsoft was interested in replacing the legacy win32s with .net and metro, but despite tons of advertising and resources, win32 is still going strong.

To be fair, Microsoft haven't exactly tried to lead by example. Office is still win32, so is most of Windows. The UWP stuff on top is nothing but a very thin skin, even the ribbon in Windows Explorer (not even UWP) disappears once you open a system explorer windows like control panel. The rapid and repeat change from Metro to Modern to UWP sure didn't help things. Microsoft likes to talk, but they do not lead and, if you want to change an industry, you have to lead first.
