As a "cross-platform" developer myself, being confronted with Mac OS would frighten me. It's probably just OS chauvinism, but I do not consider Mac OS a "real" operating system.

Developing on something without real memory protection and no real kernel sounds like no fun at all. Not without a hardware debugger, anyway.

Watching Mac OS 8.x on a top of the line box completely lock up the UI (until I got bored and walked away) when the salesperson launched an application convinced me years ago that Mac OS was hardly ready as a development platform. Not for me, anyway. Either give me a true threaded interface, or give me a POSIX shell and get out of my way. Stock Mac OS has neither of these things.
