Hi Just wondered if anyone had an opinion on how I should created a new Point Of Sale system.
I currently have one in access with sql back end. I am thinking of windows forms(c#) with Sql. I have thought about wpf but have found it difficult to work with, probably just because I don't know what I am doing.

I would hope this program would still be running in 10 years and not obsolete.
Will wpf replace windows forms?
I would probably use datasets and datareaders, is this old?
Should I use LINQ or entity framework?(not really familiar with either)

Finally would a stored procedure run faster than a LINQ query selecting 100,000 records for example.

I know this is a pretty open question but just looking for a few pointers or insights.
