I started programming before OWL existed (my first IDE was Turbo Pascal for CP/M on an Apple //e back in the early 80's).

I went through Pascal (OWL), C++ (MFC), and then C# (WinForms, and currently WPF). I refuse to code for WinUI, simply because I have no desire to learn it.

It took me a while to accept WPF (and I fought it HARD), but I find it easy to do (easier than WinForms in a lot of ways). I do all of my design work in the XAML editor (you can drag from the Toolbox pane to the XAML to get a new control on the page, and intellisense guides you when you start changing properties in the XAML, so it's not TOO bad).

After two years away from desktop apps, I spent the last weekend doing a WPF version (proof of concept) of our web app from work, and the hardest part was making the app allow the user to adjust font size with Ctrl+ and Ctrl- like a web browser (we have to comply with Section 508 by allowing the font in an application to be increased by up to 200%). A few years ago, I wrote a custom message box library that allows the developer to specify text size and custom colors (among other features), and with a little tweaking, my message boxes use the increased font size.
