The iPhone SDK and free software: not a match

Being both, a Windows & Open source programmer for quite a while now, I find Apples attitude towards developers is precisely the reason why 99.99% of developers do not program for the Mac. Rather than investing in marketing hype, Apple could do better by inviting developers to their stagnant OS that is devoid of even the most basic applications. In contrast MS's solid developer support & the Linux folks are such a joy to work with. The iphone is doomed to fail, personally I prefer WM6 on a phone & look forward to Googles Android.
