You don't need to know ObjC to program for the Mac. There are other fine languages and libraries that work well in OS X. I use Python and wxPython and they work like a charm. The idea that Mac programming absolutely has to be done in ObjC is ridiculous especially for beginners. I am by no means an expert programmer (and have no problems with saying that) but working with scripting languages is a great way to start.
