And trying to write anything non-trivial will have you cursing Apple 7 ways 'til Sunday. It's a still-evolving language with lots of warts and weird behaviors. It has a few cool ideas (for what is intended to be a common language), but very poor execution on many.

Try creating an immutable array, for one.

The funny thing is that all of those were objectively better in performance than what PCs were using, with the (possible) exception of USB. Apple never went for the cheap option just for the sake of being cheap, but the rest of the industry never followed whole-heartedly, so Apple ended up with tech that died, except for niches.

USB is the one that Apple dove into and somehow (probably because of the promise of cheap peripherals) got PC makers to go along. The charge was led by Apple.
