“Reminiscent of C#”! You should check the heritage. Turbo pascal, Delphi then C# are the work of Anders Hejlsberg.
Delphi, like turbo pascal was a stunningly great tool for its time. It had the advantage of compiling down to one executable which was great if you wanted an app to fit onto a floppy. C# basically adopted a similar object model with a c like syntax and a whole lot of extra stuff. Note - my experience with Delphi stopped at Delphi 6.
I did get Lazarus going to a degree on the Mac. The installation is a bit clunky.

Visual Studio UWP works on Raspberry PI, XBOX, PC, Windows Phone, etc... 

And you can program it using C#, C++, VB, etc... All binary compatable thanks to CLR(Common Language Runtime)

Plus many modern features like XAML, MVVM, Async functions, etc...

I have used the free B4J from Anywhere Software. It works on many boxes, windows, linux,mac,rpi. They also have b4a for android, b4i for ios, and b4r for arduino. Yes , it is similar to vb6, but much improved, integrated ide with debugging, visual designer. Great libraries, and forum support.
Here is link for chart tutorial: https://www.b4x.com/android/forum/threads/android-charts-framework.8260/

It all starts with a mental vision.

Universal Windows Programs (“Metro apps”) aren’t dead yet, but there’s a better alternative on the horizon @ AskWoody

Microsoft just announced that it’s going to start building Progressive Web App support into Edge and Win10.

...

It now looks to me as if there’s going to be a headlong dash into developing PWAs — and that UWP’s days are numbered. Time will tell.
