> WinRT for Windows 8.1-10.
Aha. I see. And what's the difference between WPF and... "WinRT"? In "WinRT" you write GUI in.. XAML, in WPF - in... XAML.

You are mixing stuff.

WPF is a .NET GUI toolkit that uses XAML for defining the GUI layouts. You can code WPF applications just with code, without any XAML.

WinRT is an evolution of COM, geared towards becoming the new Windows ABI for the so called universal apps. It also uses XAML for the layout definitions.

XAML is XML based and has multiple versions. Silverlight, WPF, WinRT all use XAML, but each version doesn't offer 100% API coverage across all platforms.
