Does Apple have a public stance on ANY development language other than
Obj-C? In case you wonder about Java, read this page and search for
Apple's not going to discourage other languages from running on OS X, but
people thinking that Apple's is going to endorse Mono/Java/Cobol/Ruby/You
Favorit Pet Language should not hold their breath.
As for the linux comment, I suggest you put the crack pipe down. :-) If OS
X was ever going to be linux based then it would have release on linux from
the get go.
