use modern Windows design

JADE still uses U Istyles from several years ago, and users complain that applications built in it look "old fashioned". This can be mitigated to a certain extent using skins, but it would be nice if JADE upgraded to the latest Metro design language.

That would require a major rewrite for Jade, to turn it from a Win32 app into a Windows Presentation Foundation app and also a major rewrite for your app to utilise all the new WPF style presentation layers. You may also have interesting issues with finding replacements for any Win32 ActiveX controls you're using, etc. Having said all of that, out of interest what about the 'look' of your application are you unable to mitigate using Jade Skins to remove/reduce the 'old fashioned look' complaints from users of your application?
