If you are new to the C set of languages, and you want to learn to do something cool, you don't need to be a master at C. I agree that in the long run, having a good understanding of C will be required, but everyone wants to jump in and start writing programs that they are familiar with, with windows and menus, not just a command line tool that prints "Hello World".


People want to do fun, practical things when they program, and telling a new programmer (or someone coming from visual or real basic) that they need to write command line tools for a while is really going to discourage them.


Start writing in Cocoa, but be prepared to have to learn a lot of C in the process. Remember, this tutorial is aimed at getting people to start coding, and I don't think programming in pure C is a necessity to learn objective-C.
