@longzheng: so essentially you're saying "I don't get how it works, so I'm going to brute force my way through it and say it's awkward?"

 

In my experience, the WPF learning curve is very high, from the basics to the advanced. Plus, the tools are too fragile for the WYSIWYG experience to last any considerate amount of time. Most of the MetroTwit XAML I do now is without the help of any previews and it's a bit of trial and error.
