Poll: Which .NET UI tech do you target?

.NET developers, do you mainly use WinForms, WebForms, WPF/Silverlight, Windows 8 native, or ASP.NET MVC?

Microsoft keeps adding new options to how developers can get data to the screen, while continuing to support the older technologies. While Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) and Silverlight got a lot of attention over the last several years (only to be supplanted by the new Windows 8 native applications), I always suspected that there was -- and still is -- a large contingent of developers who are using WinForms. The same can be said for ASP.NET WebForms and ASP.NET MVC.

If you are a .NET developer, which of these UI technologies are you using primarily?

We have to continue with what we started in (ie Winforms), but any new apps may well be Windows 8 UI (or whatever it's called this week) or WPF is still a possibility.


I'd be so happy for tick boxes instead of radio buttons here. They're not for overlapping technologies. I did tick MVC in this case since it's the larger portion of my time for now.
