Hi,

Having worked with Various Micrsoft programming languages for many years, now I am dabbling into WPF for a project. I don't know a single bit about it, but as I started to read the manual, I got confused as to what is the real purpose of WPF?

Why would you put your UI in painful XML tags when you can use Windows forms? If it were to separate UI completely with the behaviour, aren't the developers doing that already with clean layering architecture with the forms based applications? and why somebody would like to load a desktop application on a browser? If its a browser based application, it should be developed in ASP.NET.

Thanks,
