Comment on "What is Cocoa?"
by Manton Reece — Oct 02
This is why I now go out of my way to not even use the word Cocoa when discussing programming. I prefer to say that I build Mac apps, not that I build Cocoa apps.

Dropping the Cocoa term also goes a long way toward putting Carbon vs. Cocoa behind us. There's a whole bunch of new APIs that didn't exist back then. Most of them have an Objective-C interface, some are straight C. If you put them all under the Cocoa umbrella then it becomes meaningless.
