Interesting Speculation From Sean Heber

Sean Heber:

They’ve been slowly training us developers to stick with the documented stuff and use their higher level APIs. They want us to accept their abstractions and work within them. This is usually rationalized under the guise of safety, compatibility, and quality control. Those are fine and acceptable reasons by themselves, but what if there’s another purpose lurking behind the curtain?

I think there’s a chance that Apple is slowly building Objective-C into a managed environment similar to Java/.NET.
