So, WPF has been around for five years now, as (one reason) an alternative to WinForms for generating desktop applications with more visual appeal.
My question is, is it catching on? Last I checked a few years ago you could implement some niftier animation and visual tricks, but it was obviously way behind winforms in terms of ease of development, IDE, documentation etc. I figured if WPF becomes a popular alternative to winforms, then WPF would close the gap relatively quickly.
My question is, is this happening? Does anyone have any data points on whether significant numbers of developers are using WPF vice WinForms; i.e., is WPF the future? Or will WinForms continue to dominate until they come up with something completely new in the coming years?
Thanks for any data points.
