I've noticed a trend here on the site where authors/developers are still writing GUI applications in MFC (for C++) and/or WinForms. What's noticeably absent is WPF in either Framework or .NET Core.

So I pose the question (this is not snark, I genuinely want to know) why authors/developers are still choosing old(er) technology?

I used to think it was the learning curve, but I suspect there's more to this story.

Bonus Question: What's also noticeably absent is VB6 and VB.NET. Have those platforms truly bitten the dust (for good)?
