Apple In the latest update to the technical documentation available from ADC, Apple has published this note: "Features added to Cocoa in Mac OS X versions later than 10.4 will not be added to the Cocoa-Java programming interface. Therefore, you should develop Cocoa applications using Objective-C to take advantage of existing and upcoming Cocoa features".

why would apple move to C# ? It's a microsoft product.
Why would apple move to mono? It's an open-source language which they have no control of - which is important when you are developing for your own platform!

For those who don't remember, back in the days of rhapsody, apple had yellow box for windows NT - you were able to run cocoa apps on windows! If apple wanted to they could have cocoa apps running on windows without any problems. Who knows - maybe apple has kept yellow box on the back burner just like they did with os x on intel.
