Ah, another pontificating buffoon who has never used or seen smalltalk.

Hot flash from the newsroom, genius - ObjectiveC is an extension of C. If you want to use the features of C or call regular C code, you can. Indeed, for some features, such as CALayers, that is the only way to do it.

Now, if you are more comfortable with C++, keep programming in it. Skip the iPhone development a stick to Windows.

Freaking language snobs. Right tool for the job. I use C, Java, ObjectiveC and even a bit of various scripting languages daily. Get over yourself, honestly.

Some people manage by the book, even though they don't know who wrote the book or even what book.
