Does anyone think apple will every make xcode for windows or linux? I mean it makes since to do that, because if they do someone can create it in xcode and still be cross platform? Im not a top level programmer or anything, but you can create something in objective-c and then compile on windows or linux right?

are you just wanting the interface in windows or linux? I see no competitive advantage.. so no, I do not think apple will port xcode to windows or linux. It simply would serve them no purpose I don't think.

Im taling about porting the entire suite to windows/linux, to develope cross platform. I mean think about, if you development something on xcode and also have the ability to develope it for windows and linux, you can now sale your software for all three systems and increase your profit revenue.
Yeah you have realbasic, but its slow as grandma. and i personally never got eclipse to work on my mac box.
