A strong business case for WPF?

I had up till recently been thinking that WPF was just going to be most usefull for imitating the consumer ‘oooooooohhh’ factor with fancy Mac type graphics on a PC. I hadnt come up with a good reason to learn it to integrate it into a business application. As with most clever things about graphics, Bob Powell has a good point to make on his blog in a post with the same title from Feb 10th.
His basic point is that when databinding to rapidly changing data sources from stock quotes to transaction/sales data  in real time, the drawing part of the application is taking up a large percentage of the processing time. Using WPF, all this can be done on the graphics card and the processor can be released to do some real work.
 
Good Point, Well Made Bob
