> I hope that the time spent in developing FBtoC was not useless. I would say the time spent is absolutely and definitively NOT useless! FBtoC, by harnessing the same back-end as Xcode for compiling, has made tremendous leaps in long term compatibility. There are valid reasons why we use FB, and fair reasons why some prefer Cocoa, but either way, we should stick to the one we prefer. When it comes to technology, whatever is predicted for next year is not relevant until you get to next year. Apple, like many others, often changes their view, their position, and their stance. On some occasions, their views change with no apparent reasoning, followed by a U-turn, so everything should be treated as fluidic until you reach the situation in question. Just because a person uses Cocoa does not imply they are any more or less future-proof than the next person. Cocoa developers also have to amend their code. As a wise man once said, "The only way to reliably predict the future is to invent it".
