OMG! MFC Lives!!!

I started off my career writing apps and controls in C++ with the MFC library.. despite what many say, I found it gave flexibility that Visual Basic could not, and allowed you to build a complex GUI with relative ease.

Considering that even WinForms looks obsolete with the advent of WPF, it is good to see that Microsoft have not abandoned MFC, but have in fact updated it!

I personally have no compelling reason to go back to MFC… WPF has sold me totally. But with so much legacy code out there, it isn’t unfeasible to get involved again in future…
