client apps

Depending on .NET for client applications is a 23mb mistake, as is the promise of cross-platform GUIs. (See e.g.: the proliferation of Java apps, or rather the lack thereof.)

Especially when you already have (had) working native code.

But I've argued this too many times, and it's not my problem anymore. (And, more importantly, users don't mind weird programs when they only have one option; observe the proliferation of Windows AIM.)
