Independent Mac developers
DrunkenBlog has published a commentary on the state of independent development of Mac software. "As far as big, high-quality apps... , and those that are being released are from the usual suspects. Nothing much new. Isn't Cocoa a developer nirvana, and doesn't the 'power of Cocoa' allow one guy to do the work of 5?" The article puts some blame on Apple: "Apple historically hasn't had a good relationship with developers, and while I'd have to do more checking than its worth, I wouldn't be surprised if Apple has had the most cantankerous developer relation of any OS vender evar."
