Good info, but:
Quote:
WPF is what ASP.NET Web Forms tries to emulate: Web Forms was designed for WPF programmers who needed to use their skill set of building PC applications to building web applicatons.
This is not true; ASP.NET Web Forms was created many years before WPF. ASP.NET is modeled after the old VB 6 forms and Win Forms (that shipped along with ASP.NET in the first version of Visual Studio .NET).

Cheers,
