First, you explain stuff vaguely. Only from comments I guessed original application was in WinForms. Well, but it makes situation worse: you compare apples to oranges! How at all you can match WinForms (which keeps everything in *.cs) with WPF where a lot of actions programmed inside WPF library and exposed thru declarative XAML?? Relax, we don't need your persuades "how MVVM is cool". If you persuade yourself, you double waste a time.
I think you're comparing technologies, not paradigms. In essence, one could use MVVM with WinForms too. OTOH, if your only metric is code size, IMO it would be fair to compare the mosts compact solutions with both technologies, and IMO if you write everything inside the UI files WinForms could deliver a more compact or at least equally compact solution. If code size isn't the only metric, what are the others? I don't mean to say that WinForms is better or than WPF is better, I'm just saying that your enthusiasm for WPF, at least from what you're telling us, may be unfounded.
I would put £50 on the Dalai Lama if I was a Tibetan man.
My Liege, Sir Dalek of Luton, kindly throw your humble serf a bone here (even if all the meat's gnawed off), and give said pitiful suppliant just a clue as to what on earth you are talking about.
I beg of you to remember (and forgive the fact) that I live without teevee, by choice.
This plea for semantic mercy, however, in no way meant to disparage the inestimable value of what you have written as a Zen koan, worthy of meditation until kicked in the arse by some form of enlightenment, however.
I just watched a film on videocassette. Brings back some good old times! After the movie I almost forgot to rewind, but I remembered just in time.
For those of you less than approx. 18 years, this is what I'm talking about[^].
I sure feel old though (and I'm only 24)...
Four big boxes full of tapes... That's like what? Twenty of them?
Sold my C64 a long time ago. Never owned an Atari.
I would like an original NES though. Star Wars, Turtles, Tale Spin and the first Super Mario's are still some of the best games I've ever played
I used to have one, but it stopped working a few years ago
We just had to euthenize our 18-year-old cat with dimentia, hyperthyroidism, and cancer. I have had her since I was 1 year old.

I think computer viruses should count as life. I think it says something about human nature that the only form of life we have created so far is purely destructive. We've created life in our own image.
