Mac .NET? The moment of decision is at hand.
by Steve Anglin
1. Apple's Mac OS X+ is a BSD-based OS.
2. Apple's commitment to Java seems strong as exemplified by Aqua (J2SE); I doubt they'll just change direction toward .NET, which Microsoft may 'require.'
3. The Java community supports Mac as exemplified by the following tools: JBuilder for Mac and WebObjects (J2EE Web app server for Mac).
4. The open source community has embraced the Mac; even slashdot.org has a mac development news area on its site.
What do you think? I'm sure there are other reasons as well.
