Take a hint from VSCode: a large portion of your potential audience require cross-platform. We use azure iot-edge, docker etc. and deploy to diverse linux in addition to windows, so currently MSIX is not an option for us unless we want to do double effort...

Thanks for the feedback.  We are growing the platform and have a open source cross platform SDK available at https://aka.ms/msix-sdk.  Feel free to add feature requests or contribute to the GitHub.
