Apple In this day and age of iOS this and iPad that you'd nearly forget it, but the gadget maker from Cupertino actually makes personal computers and an accompanying operating system as well. It's been nearly three years since the last substantial release, so it's about time: Apple has just announced a press event titled 'Back to Mac', with a lion on the invite.

Forgive me if I'm wrong, but I could swear Finder has been a native Cocoa app since Snow Leopard was released.

I would also die for a decent file manager, as the Finder is still incredibly cumbersome, even after all these years, even after all these complaints from all over the web. It'd be nice for Apple to also take this opportunity to cease being a hypocrite by finally moving everything over to Cocoa


Which according to the rules of English grammar can (and to me does) imply that Finder is not Cocoa-based.

The Snow Leopard Finder is Cocoa. Prior versions were written in Carbon to demonstrate to Adobe, Microsoft, etc, that Carbon was useable. catfooding, so to speak
