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).

Apple does alienate developers with eternal transitions.

From Mac Toolbox to Carbon. From Quickdraw to Quartz. From CodeWarrior to Xcode. From PPC to x86. From FSRef to Unix paths, from PEF to MachO, from Type/Creator to suffix, from the resource fork to nib files...with all these transitions, when are we supposed to add new features to our apps?
