KDE In his lengthy and interesting blog post covering the future of Plasma, KDE's Aaron Seigo proposes Qt Quick and QML (a declarative language that embeds JavaScript) as replacement of the Graphics View architecture currently used by Plasma. This holds a promise of massive speedups and cheap effects as all paint operations become candidates for OpenGL acceleration, contrary to the aging Graphics View architecture that is still stuck with various inefficiencies caused by the underlying QPainter approach. Expressiveness and easy programmability of QML is a nice bonus, of course.

I've also developed with WPF, is awesome but some how it did't take over how it should, why? I don't now.

But if you ask me I think it was opaqued by HTML5 and javascript.

If you want to develop ugly boring business apps, the go ahead and code in MFC or Winforms.

Depends, with WinForms you can do kick ass bussines apps. too, WPF lacks of some goodies WinForms has.
