WPF is on life support? Prove it.

Of course it is.

Click on "Windows" there, you get this:

Hm, there is a "Desktop" item, there, you click on it and..

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/desktop/

Stll no WPF! But: "Explore the docs about desktop app development ...Check out the Windows Development Reference for in-depth technical information about how to build desktop apps...." you click on it and.. Tada!:

That's the Win32 documentation! So, the prefered way to write desktop applications is Win32 apparently. According to MSDN at least.

I am not saying WPF is EOL, I am sure WPF applications will continue to run for a long time to come.. but Microsoft's attention level to it is barely above their attention to WinForms.
