General Development The final ISO ballot on C++0x closed on Wednesday, and we just received the results: Unanimous approval. The next revision of C++ that we've been calling "C++0x" is now an International Standard! Geneva will take several months to publish it, but we hope it will be published well within the year, and then we'll be able to call it "C++11."

Man this thread is disintegrating badly.

Objective-C is _NOT_ proprietary. You are _not_ restricted in your use of it in ANY way whatsoever. It also pre-dates Apple going back the NeXT days (but of course Apple bought that lock, stock and barrel).

Proprietary would mean that the owners restricted, via license, your use of Objective-C is some way. This is not the case - you can implement your own compiler if you so choose to and even extend the language.

Also - I've seen Objective-C used WAY outside of Apple kit.
