The idea behind this article, as I see it, is to teach people enough C so that they can use Objective-C and Cocoa. Learning a language with automatic garbage collection would be pointless since Objective-C does not have automatic garbage collection. However the memory management is different and simpler than straight C; you don't have to deal with malloc and free. Also, there is less fiddling with pointers.
