Two things that I think were done exceptionally well in WPF are the layout model and the content model.

I love the choices we have in designing a declarative, dynamic layout (StackPanels, DockPanels, WrapPanels, Grid) rather than the comparatively limited layout options in WinForms. It makes designing the dynamic resizing of a window in WPF a breeze.

The content model is equally as great, as it allows you to embed anything inside any content control, like adding custom user controls inside a button or tab header for example, or pictures with transforms. You aren't limited to supporting only media types that the control designer intended, as you are with WinForms. It's completely universal. You can even embed blocks of custom content into a flow document, and have text flow around it and stuff.

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.
