I use Retroarch when i don't have any other alternative or unsatisfying ones (for example on the GPD XD).
But emu-politics aside (even if what Haze spotted is really important), it's a very hard and counter intuitive frontend to use.
I won't see the point about using it in Windows. It has the merit to exist where nothing else exists, but the unifiyed interface is barely a point when you're so user unfriendly.
