Legal I guess this is what some people would call "karma". Apple may shout off the rooftops that it invented multitouch, and that anyone else using it is clearly stealing it from them - but another company has taken offence to that, and has slapped the Cupertino giant with a patent infringement suit over multitouch.

From the hundreds of reasons considering Apple as evil you chose "deprecating an older API"? Really?

And you don't need to rewrite your whole program in Objective-C. The logic of your application can be in C or C++. Only the parts that interact with the Cocoa Framework must be in Objective-C.

And if you don't want to do even that you can write your program in Java or use GTK+ or Qt. Or even use one of the countless bridges for other languages that are out there.

I agree with some of the other stuff you said, but saying that Apple is evil because they have their own Frameworks is ignorant at best.
