Comment on "WWDC 2007 Epilogue"
by Danny — Jun 16
Ten years ago, part of me wished I had been around for the first era of Mac development. Now I'm happy to be here now.

Yes! Until very recently I felt the same way. Development on this platform has had a checkered history and it's never been easy. But we're enjoying a renaissance right now and it seems - for new comers at least - all the bad memories of MacApp, OpenDoc, the toolbox and Apple's hot-cold relationship with developers are fading. OSX has matured and now we have the CEOs of Intel, EA and id declaring their new commitment to the platform. Windows users, disillusioned with Vista, are seriously considering OSX as an alternative. How did miracle come about?!

The contrast with 1997 is frightening.
