Mac OS X According to an announcement posted on the Carbon developer's mailing list, Metrowerks announced at AdHoc that the forthcoming release of CodeWarrior 10 will be the last for OS X. This isn't surprising given that Apple is transitioning to Intel chips and Metrowerks has exited the Intel market, but it's still the end of an era. CodeWarrior literally saved Apple's bacon during the transition to PowerPC in the early 1990s by shipping the first working set of developer tools for the new platform. And since then CodeWarrior has been the main toolkit for commercial development on the Mac (especially pre-XCode).

but it is very buggy, slow, and unpolished at the same time: Excellent FUD!

Care to elaborate why you think that is FUD?

I am currently porting a large application from CW from Xcode, and I fully agree with the original author's opinion: Xcode is buggy and slow and the workflow is counter-intuitive and unnecessary complicated.
