I was recently asked by Omar Besiso, what I would do to mitigate the performance issues faced when your WPF application leverages gradient’s in a variety of areas of the application, while the application is used remotely. I kept thinking, but couldn’t really come up with an answer straight up. I was told that the answer was to not use gradient’s at all. At first I did accept that as a plausible answer, considering Microsoft Expression Suite also seem to have solid colours for their entire UI. However being a developer who highly considers eye candy as being important, I decided to set out to look for a better solution to this problem.
