Cocoa vs. Carbon
We've done this before on these forums, but Slashdot is running a piece on the different developer frameworks for OS X and the issue came up. They pointed to a pretty interesting piece on the subject (from our good friends at Unsanity)...
Here's the Slashdot piece it came from...

Cocoa brings the Macintosh into the 1990s. NeXTStep was well ahead of its time. Cocoa makes it easier for the programmer to write closer to error-free code the first time, once they learn the framework. Smalltalk-based Objective-C, developed by Brad Cox, is a great, pure object-oriented language. Cocoa takes full advantage of it. Java is similar and Java programmers should enjoy Objective-C easily. C++ programmers don't integrate so easily because of C++'s shortcomings and stiff, unchanging nature.
Carbon is the best of the late 1980s mindset. It's slim and a good base onto which you can add an application framework like MacApp or PowerPlant and not incur too much of a performance decrease. If you want to programme in Carbon without an application framework, don't do anything too complicated.
