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.

Going from VS to Xcode is very hard. At least that's what I found. Too much drag and drop when setting up the GUI and I struggled to make the mental connection. That's the problem with spending close to 10 years playing with Win32 and MFC. But once you get over the initial learning curve, Xcode is really good. Especially considering that it's free.
