Miguel de Icaza in the comments on his blog said that he does not
believe WPF is being open sourced.

I think the GUI toolkit with the most potential are:

* WPF (but needs to be open source and ported to opengl)
* qt (but needs a stable, mature and up to date set of bindings)

Both of these are modern GUI technologies that support proper
Resolution Independence and touch. For WPF we are at the mercy of
Microsoft to opensource it (implementing from the ground up is a huge
job), For qt the community could make it happen but so far has lacked
the will to do so.
