    In very simple terms --
    It is a vector based set of routines that uses XAML (markup language). It is the direction Microsoft has stated it is going with forms presentation in managed applications.

    I'll let others expand on what it is.

    It's a lot more than just a GUI library, that's for sure. Take a look at the Wikipedia entry:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows...ion_Foundation
    The Wikipedia entry has some concentrated details that are probably not important in a "what is WPF" query, but it also has headings that give you an idea of what it encompasses.

    This intro doc describes what WPF is all about, and it includes lots of screenshots:

    Some examples never hurt either:
