So now that I'm happy with my new Mac and have experience working on a Mac, I want to transfer my programming knowledge from Linux to Mac. Since I use the GCC on Linux, compiling simple terminal apps is no big deal at all. The biggest problem for me is choosing a solid language. I really want to use Cocoa with Xcode, but it seems to me that Cocoa developers love Objective-C. I used C++ on Linux and don't really want to learn C just to learn Objective-C. Actually, do I really have to?

So, can I use C++ with Cocoa and Xcode? If so, how well does Cocoa and C++ work with each other? Also, if I do need to learn Objective-C, how does it compare to C++ in your experience?

Thanks in advance.
