    Probably not - I'm just guessing
    More like Xamarin is a migration of WPF into a cross-platform space. For example a Xamarin Button has to be a version that renders on all platforms not just Windows for Desktops. System.IO.Path has to handle iOS as well as just Windows... And so on.

    Xamarin.Forms now supports UWP, Android and iOS, in the future will support desktop MAC, although UWP supports desktop but it is subject to the Microsoft Store, so the logical thing is that Xamarin.Forms should directly support WPF to create traditional windows applications Desktop.

    Miguel was seeking a partner to implement Forms for WPF on Twitter this week, so perhaps but will take a while. Forms still missing a lot of desktop API's that will need to be added but I think it will be a good move. UWP as a desktop app platform is a failure in my opinion so WPF is a good addition.
