If I count correctly we have three (3) different Cocoa bridges in Mono now.
One is Cocoa#, which is part of Mono and rather incomplete (or so it seemed to me).
Another is <a href="http://www.monobjc.net/" target="_top" rel="nofollow">MonoObjc</a>, which I found very useful but it isn't part of Mono.
A third one is <a href="http://code.google.com/p/mobjc/" target="_top" rel="nofollow">mobjc</a>, which I don't know much about. Plus I found it too complicated.
Delphi Prism <a href="http://edn.embarcadero.com/article/39017" target="_top" rel="nofollow">supports the creation of Cocoa applications</a> using Cocoa#.
The most inconvenient part about writing Cocoa applications using Mono is the build process, I think. Visual Studio doesn't support building such applications, and neither do Xcode or MonoDevelop. But Visual Studio does with Delphi Prism (which I haven't tried but have heard good things about).
Can something be done about this on Novell's side? Would it be remotely possible to unite the three different projects under one banner and make them part of Mono? And what about official support in MonoDevelop or some module for Xcode?
I'd pay a few hundred euros for a solution. Maybe a few others want to join and we could offer a bounty?
