lolo, gotta try that! Thanks Bug!
OSX and Windows offer different technology and the idea of even using mono on OSX seems to be a little stretched. However, since I don't code C in any flavor I really shouldn't be commenting :(
The reason I keep shying away from learning to use mono to help with a OSX conversion seems a little round about to provide a solution on the OSX platform, since xcode does what mono/QT do anyway.
So, I'm gonna agree with the idea that maybe OM on OSX maybe shouldn't be considered unless there are able bodies willing to spend the time.
However, market share shouldn't be biased on the users in this community. In general, mac users are not so interested in tweeking/developing compared to the wintel community. In a sense, I'm a mac = I use my mac. That's it.
But, does this mean that mac owners wouldn't want a mac car experience? I don't know. This could be due to the fact that marketing and mindshare is like zero. 1 metric would be ebay -- you just don't see the easy install setups for sale that you see for voompc and such.
I stayed away for a bit to think about what I was working on ... a powerbook/macbook would probably be a killer setup since you have a battery with sleep that offers almost the same instant on that an iphone offers. I'm still looking into a mini to see if you can do the same. I am not wintel educated so I don't know if there is a similar setup for a windows/linux machine.
Another however, the *tablet/*pad might be a better solution than standard hardware.
In some ways I really wish the meego environment was more along in feature releases ... :(
@ mac FE development ....
I'm trying to learn cocoa (obj-c) but I'm having a hard time shifting from php to C.
So, Anybody got a plugin + localization xcode base that I can play with?
I can put together a simple project but I'm looking for a base xcode application that has:
- a plugin architecture
- localization architecture (I can live without this)
