If we're not careful, a long-running process will cause our application to "lock up". The BackgroundWorker component gives us an easy-to-use solution by moving that long-running process off of our UI thread and also gives us features such as progress reporting, cancellation, and error handling. We'll see how easily the BackgroundWorker component fits in with an application using the Model-View-ViewModel (MVVM) pattern. And we'll compare the BackgroundWorker component to the Task Parallel Library to make sure we're using the right tool for the job.
