I agree with your first paragraph very much. Though I have been using C for several years and still hit a wall. I simply loath OO programming. Though ObjC.pdf on the Mac Dev site has helped a bit for learning OO particularly with ObjC.

What I'd like to see are:

1.) A well detailed,easy to read listing of the objects/methods in the Cocoa API. NSWhatever get's confusing, especially when several basic components are still not available on the Mac website.

2.) A good, C->Obj-C tutorial. This seems to be what you're doing and I'm grateful. I'm just looking forward to seeing the transition period between the two.

3.) Is it possible to do this all from an editor like emacs?
IPBuilder is wonderful, but with the constant, click here-> drag to this element, drag back to this method, etc etc it get's really confusing. Guess I'm just so use to cli programming.

Well I'm done, thanks again for the article and keep up the good work.
