Cocoa + Interface Builder or XAML/WPF ?
Have used Cocoa + Interface Builder and its quite a joy compared to web dev.
Has some thoughts on this :
Beyond that, though, they have way more in common than they do different. I'm not sure it makes sense to talk of one of them as a better model than the other, versus maybe a better implementation of the same workflow.
WPF is better.
Also that SO post reads a lot like "I can't stand Interface Builder" (which is understandable if you aren't prepare to embrace it).
I find the Cocoa model of not having to do anything with XML far better for my sanity. But then again I guess there are people who prefer XML artistry to drawRect overriding. :)
