Comment on "A Quick Objective-C 2.0 Tutorial"
by Chris Welton — Dec 19
Honestly, I do not like the idea of objc "garbage collection" or [.] method notation.

I mean, seriously, imo, this is just "worse is better" mentality to the n'th degree. The main reason I love objc is that it WASN'T that...

This can only lead to more obscure bugs being written by programmers with even less of a clue as to what it is they are actually "doing". (Who will of course have no idea what they are doing wrong...)

You may not believe me yet, but wait a while.

Oh, and P.S., objc (pre 2.0) had the best memory management system I've ever seen... After I learned how to use it (Which very few people ever bother to learn, btw, esp. those who write tutorials on the matter.) I never wanted to go back to another system.
