How can we improve the Windows dev platform?

Add an API to retrieve all files from a folder that matches the speed of Win32 call

With UWP, getting the file count for 8k files using CreateFileQueryWithOptions or GetFilesAsync on a SSD will take 9 seconds.
With WPF, getting the same file count using dirInfo.GetFiles will take 10 milliseconds.

    Is this for real? Can we please have some acknowledgement from MS that they are aware of this issue and are working on it.
