Jamie Zawinski on iPhone Development

“I finally got the iPhone/iPad port [of Dali Clock] working. It was ridiculously difficult, because I refused to fork the Mac OS X code base: the desktop and the phone are both supposedly within spitting distance of being the same operating system, so it should be a small matter of ifdefs to have the same app compile as a desktop application and an iPhone application, right? Oh ho ho ho. I think it’s safe to say that MacOS is more source-code-compatible with NextStep than the iPhone is with MacOS.”
