WinForms has its place, but I find generally now-adays that I use it less and less even for utility apps, I've just got faster at knocking out WPF. In terms of desktop development, learning WPF is going to be pretty useful - it's widely used and performs well, it simplifies a lot of typical tasks. But it's interesting to take a look at what big fat apps are built in:
Visual Studio: C++ (Win32 SDK), COM, WPF
Microsoft Office: No idea. Guessing lots of C++/Win32 SDK and some WPF? Anyone else have any ideas?
Photoshop: Guessing C++/Win32
Come to think of it, what are most large-scale desktop apps written in? My assumption is C++ but this may be totally wrong...
