I've heard good things about doing Cocoa / objective-C development on OS X, I was interest to see just how much of an improvement it is over the CW/CFM/Mach-O/Carbon/PowerPlant jungle I've been roaming in recently. I'm not sure if I like the objective-C syntax or not, I keep puttings comma's in where they're not needed, but still I found it to be reasonable. In the space of a few hours I got a RESTLog client running to the point where I could make new POSTs (no edits yet), including slurping the now playing info out of iTunes.

Only time will tell if it really is a big improvement, but I like what I've seen so far enough to continue investigating. Perhaps this is the fun platform I've been looking for.
