WPF custom TaskDialog that renders the same on Vista and XP. This custom dialog simplifies programming by providing a simple interface for developers that is not Operating System dependent. This solution does not use the Windows API for rendering.

Current passions are: Electron, ES6, Node.js, Angular, Aurelia, hybrid, Socket.IO, MQTT, and IoT.

Still keen on WPF and Prism, but currently Electron and ES6 deliver the same apps with much better performance, and they are cross-platform.
