And is there a need for Skia library (and SkiaSharp) on Windows?

@GHV-235

Is it possible to use Avalonia UI from VB.NET?

Yes, definitely. Guys are using it from all sorts of more exotic languages. There's no reason that could stop you from using it in your VB.NET app.

@kekekeks @grokys in the nuget packages the XML documentation files i.e. Avalonia.Animation.XML
have capitalized extensions for some reason
this isnt a problem on windows,
but it means ides like vscode and avalonstudio are unable to find those files on Windows
any ideas where the capitalized name comes from?
grep -rl XML `find|grep csproj$`
We probably need to get rid of these property groups
There were left unchanged during migration from the old SDK

i think the capitalized extension was the default in VS2015
