General Development Ars' Peter Bright wrote an article today entitled "From Win32 to Cocoa: a Windows user's conversion to Mac OS X", in which he explains why he believes "Windows is dying, Windows applications suck, and Microsoft is too blinkered to fix any of it". These are rather harsh words, but there is a definitive element of truth in it. The article is part one in a three-part series.

"What I don't understand is why anybody would want to learn Cocoa from scratch."

Speaking as somebody who has recently learnt Cocoa from scratch (and still learning). Because I enjoy it. It's a shear pleasure to create Cocoa apps. I may make money off them or not, either way there's a satisfaction in writing great apps with minimal effort using a non-jarring API.
