The Myth of Cocoa Apps

Adrian Sutton:

There’s this myth that’s existed ever since the beginning of OS X - that Cocoa apps are automatically better than any other type of application. They use less RAM, run faster and are just all round better - you can’t dispute it. If you take a lousy Carbon app and rewrite it in Cocoa it will become amazing and all its problems will be solved.

This is of course, complete and utter bull.
