Thanks for the replies.

I'd like to make simple programs to start with.  Like this:

I'd like to make iPhone apps.  Android wouldn't hurt.

FWIW, that application is written in AutoHotkey but could have been written in any number of languages.

I personally either write windows software in VB.NET or Windows Presentation Foundation, with the WPF you will find the majority of Windows software is programmed in this environment. Other Windows languages we use C++ and when needed Python.

WPF is not a stand-alone language, per-say.  WPF is, as it implies by the name, a UI framework, that is used to facilitate the building of the User Experience Layer in an XML based construct that is used alongside another programming language, usually C# or Visual Basic, though any .NET language can be utilized in theory.

WPF exists as a subset of .NET Framework types that are for the most part located in the System.Windows namespace. If you have previously built applications with .NET Framework using managed technologies like ASP.NET and Windows Forms, the fundamental WPF programming experience should be familiar; you instantiate classes, set properties, call methods, and handle events, all using your favorite .NET Framework programming language, such as C# or Visual Basic.
