Don't you think WPF is already kind of platform-specific? Where do you
think you are going to run WPF applications that WIndowsForms won't run?
According to Nathan's book: "Both WindowsForms and WPF define managed
classes that wrap Windows common dialogs, except ColorDialog, FontDialog,
and FolderBrowser, which only occur in Windows. The easiest way to use
these omitted dialogs is to use the ones from Windows Forms."
