The (wpf) UI designer is definitely horrible.

And wpf does have a steeeep learning curve (trust me, 'been there). The funny thing is, to fully appreciate it, you need to use it (and actually compare it to Winforms) - and while at the beginning, you'll curse a lot (I did Big Grin | :-D ), when you start to "get" it, you'll use it for any non-trivial UI.

The more you'll delve into it, the more you'll love it (granted, you'll still hate the UI designer Big Grin | :-D ).

Two easy examples: animations, pixel shaders (i.e., Effects). When you actually start understanding how layout works in wpf, you'll be able to create controls that can simply blow your mind (which would be really really hard to implement in Winforms)!

Best,
John

P.S. If (just if Big Grin | :-D ) you want to learn WPF, I recommend "WPF 4.5 Unleashed" - a lot of things don't seem to make any sense in WPF, until explained. Again, been there Smile | :)
