Despite my lack of blogging, my interest in WPF remains. Over the last few years, I have worked in hardware companies, writing Windows applications that control devices. Since devices often have proprietary device drivers, the applications cannot be sandboxed. Thus, newer technologies are not options. WPF still feels like a good place to be stuck working, though, and I sense some increased interest in it lately, so maybe it will be alive for years to come, particular for close-to-the-metal types of applications.
