General Development There are two major varieties of Cocoa available. The first variety, possibly the more well known of the two, is the kind that you can use to make a nice warm cup of chocolate milk. While tasty, it's hardly proper subject matter for an operating systems information site. The second variety is far more on-topic: a programming environment for Apple Mac OS X that is the modern evolution of of the original NeXTSTEP frameworks. That's what I'm here to talk about today.

Cocoa != OpenStep
by John C. Randolph on Thu 24th Apr 2003 22:27 UTC

To be precise, Cocoa is *not* an implementation of OpenStep. Cocoa is highly similar to, and is based on the OpenStep API, but not every OpenStep class or method is present in Cocoa, and there's a great deal of Cocoa that was never in OpenStep.
