Frankly, Apart from being bloated, buggy, and forcing document/view paradigms upon the programmer--MFC is outdated as well. Microsoft has properly given up on it, apart from legacy support.

Instead of using MFC, I''d highly recommend writing GUI apps in .NET using Managed C++ or C#. If you have experience with Java or C++, and with Windows API or MFC, programming with .NET will come _very_ intuitively. It''s certainly easier overall than MFC, a lot more robust--with more capabilities to boot.

Granted, .NET certainly isn''t a solution for 3d applications--the performance loss would be unacceptable. But for a gui app like a map editor, it would be perfectly suited. Use the right tool for the right job
