And yet here we are, using an IDE written in LiveCode by a team comprised of dozens of company and community developers working together on a single code base.

The Business Edition has already gone that direction:

Probably at least an order of magnitude cheaper to upgrade to Business than to rewrite the whole thing in Swift from scratch. And with LC you get a cross-platform solution, while even if you did find a GUI framework for Swift for Windows you'd likely be writing a lot of forked code for each platform.
