That's actually a tough call. Here are the facts:

* It's far more capable than WinForms, and is undoubtedly the "next generation".
* It's complicated as hell, and will no doubt frustrate you beyond measure in your attempt to learn it.

So it's a toss-up. If you really want a "chewy" app with all sorts of fancy capabilities, then I would say it's worth the pain learning it, but if you don't need it, it's not at a point where I can wholeheartedly say go out and learn it already, because I know how much it hurts. :P

I will say this though: I love what I can do with it, but I hate how I have to go about doing it.

Sad but true: 4/3 of Americans have difficulty with simple fractions.

There are 10 types of people in this world: those who understand binary and those who don't.
