windows form c# -- User Interface tips to show system status

When a time consuming task is performed, we can either perform it using backgroundworker, or using a little tips like this:
Cursor.Current = Cursors.WaitCursor;
// Perform your task here
Cursor.Current = Cursors.Default;
From the UI perspective, User understand that the system is busy and will be more than happy to wait rather than disappointed.
