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.

I've been looking to the GNUStep framework. I've done only a bit of C/C++ so it's a bit harder for me. I hate having to write a bunch of code and weird macros Just to create a window with a few buttons (aka wxWindows/C++). Using Gorm I created a very simple "hello world" app and wrote very little code. Not only that, my app came with a menu bar and a working exit menu item! And if I drag the menu someplace, it shows up in the same place when I run it again! I didn't write a single line of code to do such things! I like C++ and all, but I don't want to get into wierd things such as virtual methods and such. When python bindings for GNUStep show up I'll definately jump in. I can't wait till part 2!
