Linux Well, it's been a while since we've opened this particular jar (box is not historically accurate) owned by Pandora. Desktop Linux... Yes, that ever elusive readiness of the desktop that is Linux-powered. Some story on ComputerWorld argues that the desktop Linux dream is dead, and apparently, the story is causing some stir on the web. Well, paint me pink and call me a lightbulb, but of course desktop Linux is dead. However - who gives a flying monkey? Linux is being used by more people than ever!

Out of curiosity, do you develop in objective C?

I'm gradually teaching myself C with the eventual aim to move onto Objective-C 2.0; I have no interest in writing for i-devices in the near future until Objective-C 2.0 arrives on iOS. I'm particularly excited about XCode 4.0 and the integration of LLVM/Clang to make development streamlined.

Is garbage collection that important to you? Are there other missing pieces?

Beside GC, Objective-C on the iPhone is pretty much Objective-C 2.2 now thanks to Clang (available in Xcode 3.2.x too).
