I think WinForms is the bug-ridden mess. WinForms is a code generator. I cannot count the times the generator has screwed up on complex forms. I have had to go back a day and start over. With WPF I can fix things on the fly. Also since I can hand tweak things I find myself tackling much harder UI problems with great success.
So many years of programming I have forgotten more languages than I know.
