eventually became a crappy Win32 abstraction API called MFC.
Commonly used by join-the-dots "programmers" who do
everything using MFC Class Wizard.
MFC salutes its AFX heritage with a load of function names
and .h files prefixed with Afx.
that demonstrate their total and utter ignorance
of the Win32 API.
e.g. duhh... what's an WNDCLASSEX?
