At "my" company we create a lot of small applications. Many of them have data grids to display e.g. a bill of material, tree-views, little bit of drag and drop, etc.
We wire this up way faster with Winforms than with WPF. The WinForms data binding isn't that bad. And there are almost never surprises that make you google for hours how to solve this weirdness. Maybe if we would use 3rd party controls like we do in WinForms (DevExpress), it would be easier. But plain WPF takes a ridiculous amount of time to make things work.
We also have two teams which work on big WPF projects for years now. They created awesome UIs. But the effort they put in for this is tremendous. So, if your customer is willing to pay for WPF, go for it. If you need it yesterday, go with Winforms Wink | ;-)
