Jeff, thanks for your answer. I wasn't aware that WPF ws resolution independent. +1 Before the Build conference, I would have selected WPF. But given the possible long term future of WPF appears to be in doubt, I am slightly wary of learning and developing with WPF.

+1 to combat the drive-by downvoting. pajato0, great answer - it all boils down to the passion that you have for programming. All the rest - that's just noise that gets between you and the code.

peacedog, an interesting answer, as it reflects a lot of what I have felt myself at different stages of my career. The fact that you're taking the time and effort to improve yourself both technically and in your soft skills is important. I wouldn't get too concerned about the company policies & politics that prevent you being a "perfect developer". Every large company has these problems. Focus on becoming the best programmer you can be in your current circumstances, and being a person that people respect. That will shine through all the other bull that can happen in the workplace.
