I was reading an article on Objective-C, and I still don’t quite get it.

Lifting a simple example from the post, are we really down to say that

#import <Foundation/Foundation.h>
int main (int argc, const char * argv[])
        NSAutoreleasePool *pool = [[NSAutoreleasePool alloc] init];
        NSLog (@"Hello, World!");
        [pool drain];
        return 0;

is better code than:


echo "Hello World"

It seems that people are looking for something new, rather than something good.
