WPF compared to winforms feels half baked and inconsistent; documentation is, poor and I spend more time searching the web on how to do something so simple in winforms (like a checked listbox) that I'm not enjoying development anymore.

UWP you can at least use win2d and get a graphics object like the GDI+ in winforms and draw natively when you need.

I'm not saying winforms is perfect, and not everything in WPF is bad, I can just do way more work in a single day with winforms than WPF.

It feels like the ones who created xaml looked at the web and tried to copy how that worked, to bring web devs to the desktop.
