Ok I'm scum on here I know nothing, but isn't MFC for people who cant be assed to learn win32 programming? So they cheat with MFC

If using MFC is cheating, so would be C (or C++ or Pascal or any other language) for people who aren't masochistic enough to deal with assembly.
MFC is a tool, nothing more. Beside lazyness is good in programming (in terms of code reuse that is).
Using standard code for standard things makes a program more readable.

MFC is built copletley on C++ and therefore is completley OO. If you learnt C++ without learning C first, you may find MFC easier especially if you like OOP.

What is the difference between MFC and Win32 Programming?
Is Win32 more complicated?

MFC is programming for Win32. MFC is a simplification over using the Windows API calls directly.

What does MCF stand for???

MCF stands for nothing. MFC, on the other hand, stands for Microsoft Foundation Classes and are an encapsulation of the Windows API for use in C++ (makes things simpler, or so they say).
