    Programing Language
    Hi every body I am new here and I wanted to say hi.
    Any way I started using mac and I liked it so much I was using windows xp, Vista, 7 but I liked mac more than windows now the Q is what are mac programing languages?

    I am a programmer on windows and I use VB.NET but now I want to study mac language but first I need to know what is the most common language I do not care if it is easy or hard.

    Thank you for your time.

    By the way did I ask in the right place caz I got lost so I post it here lol.

    The "native" language for Mac development is Objective-C. If you want to develop applications for the Mac, you'll want to look into the Cocoa framework that powers Mac OS . By extension, the iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad use a variant called Cocoa Touch framework..

    I use AppleScript because it's fairly easy and can do a lot. But the most popular is C.
