Respectfully, I’d like to see evidence to backup your assertions. AFAIK, Java (Swing, JavaFX) and C++ (Qt) are still the popular choices.

Typically, VB is used to write smaller applications. Enterprise desktop apps can be quite large and quite demanding.

And if most new apps are “web apps,” they’re much more likely to be written in Java than in JavaScript with Electron. After all, Electron is only 4 years old.
