  • Far from it. WPF is not an option for companies who need to display tables with data. The fuzzy font issue that comes with WPF is a deal-breaker for a lot of companies that want to keep their customers.

  • Nice Observation Paulo

  • WinForms 2.0 added a few things like HTML-like flow layout and tables, but I don't see anything coming out of .NET 4.0.

    Business applications are becoming more eye catching and data binding is a much.

    Microsoft invested in a new paradigm but promised that it would be an alternative.

    I haven't done anything worth noting in WPF but, from what I've seen, I like it. But still needs a lot more.

    Control vendors play a big part in the WinForms application development. We can't demand Microsoft to supply all we want/like.

    The question is: is Microsoft is not making a noticeable investment in WinForms, will control vendors continue to invest? Should I? If I'm starting the development of a new business application that must live for 5 years, should I even consider WinForms?

    Just using XAML for the design (which would include designer support, of course) would be an improvement and something to show.
