OK WPF is just really different from WinForms, and is the Bestest in the World. But also really Slow.Oct 17, 2013 at 2:38 PM
@BitFlipper: I agree with you. Winforms can put together a powerful application in a matter of days. I am not talking about HTML and server based apps. I have done a lot of WPF apps also and I like some of the things about them, but as far as standard controls they are just not as simple to put together. They are slower also. Drawing your own graphics in a WPF is fast ( so if your app is about drawing lines , bitmaps , zooming I would go with WPF. If you are just doing a general purpose tree control with some list views, tabbed views stick with winforms.
Like DBVS said, WPF never really was finished to the point of being easily used like winforms. Killing Silverlight was a huge mistake because this was going to put the final touches on WPF also.
