the only real users for the language are the poor souls stuck having to use it to develop for OS/X.

You can develop for OS/X using C++ and Qt. There's nothing in Apple's user interface guidelines that demands the use of a particular language or framework. Qt gives you the ability to easily write an OSX application with a truly native look and feel.

C ==> Carbon
ObjC ==> Cocoa
C++ ==> Qt
