Windows So, Windows Phone 7.5. I love it - warts and all. It has its issues, but it's so distinctive and fun it's pretty hard to not like it. So, for me, those three other people, and that cow, Microsoft today announced Windows Phone 8. It brings lots of cool new features, is built upon the Windows NT kernel and shares much of its lower levels with Windows 8, and oh, not a single current Windows Phone 7 device will be upgraded to it.

The point being that Objective-C current success is due to iOS,

Developers that want to target native development in iOS and keep their costs low have to resort to one of the native supported languages, C, C++ and Objective-C.

With Objective-C being a requirement if the application needs to use the UI.

So like in JavaScript's case, Objective-C's adoption follows iOS adoption. This is not representative of the language quality as such.
