Response to: It strange nobody mentioned it but carbon is the way to go for cross platform
This comment is amusing, since Cocoa runs/ran across an amazing number of platforms. NeXT shipped the API's on 680x0, x86, SPARC, HP PA-RISC, etc. You may want to check out www.gnustep.org as well. Even better, the development tools allow you to build an application once and deploy it natively on every platform. Wonderful stuff. Apple ships Coca on numerous platforms as WebObjects, though (oddly) they don't allow application vendors to license them, so even though Carbon app's run across a half-dozen or so platforms, you can't really sell them that way. Still, it runs great on MacOS X, or anywhere WebObjects is installed. I sure wish that Apple would allow software vendows to license the runtime.
