    Re: Loss of Control by Moving from MFC to .Net

    IMO, there isn't any loss of control moving from MFC to .Net. I will say in earlier versions of .Net (like 1.0 and 1.1) is was a bit confusing as to what Win32 functionality was implemented in .Net and what wasn't. However, .Net has matured quite a bit since then. If you are just starting with .Net, I would suggest learning WPF w/C# right off the bat and skip learning WinForms.

    I'm not going to kid you - transitioning from MFC to WPF or WinForms is going to be a bit of a learning curve, but no more than learning MFC to begin with (and probably quite a bit less).
