I'm really only commenting on the idea that wpf doesn't have one way binding. People saying dumb stuff on the internet makes me mad. Personal failing. Like that was added in 2006. That feature was coreleased with Windows Vista and IE7. Google had just bought YouTube for $1.65bn and people were incredulous about such a stupid decision on Google's part. One way binding in wpf was released to the public three months after jQuery. It's a year older than silverlight, which is significant because silverlight just took everything that wpf was and said, "what if we could make web pages this way?" Arguably without silverlight the react folks never ask, "what if silverlight wasn't completely shitty?"

I'm not really qualified to compare wpf to react or moxie.

Second, liberally copying the best parts of other things and leaving the crappy parts behind is bringing something new to the table. Don't sell yourself short.

Can you point me to a good introduction (document, blog post, video) to the way WPF does this? I'm actually quite interested in the older systems, especially because a lot of them come from a place where massive complexity is not seen as a good thing.
