Microsoft "Most people understand that Windows is used by a variety of people who have a variety of needs, ranging from corporate server to workstation to POS terminals to home PC and beyond. Most people accept that whenever Microsoft updates Windows, it has to balance the competing requirements to find some kind of workable compromise. There is however another set of competing requirements that many do not really register, even those that call themselves power users or are IT admins. It is a conflict between developers/programmers and Microsoft itself."

Small correction: WinForms is not a wrapper around MFC. It's a managed replacement for the same idea, but doesn't involve any MFC components. It does, of course, wrap the Windows API fairly closely. If you dig into the WinForms decompiled code, you run into API calls without having to go very far.
