Well, it could be argued that only a few years ago,
there wasn't much in terms of solid development tools
apart from MetroWerks CodeWarrior.
The xTalk tools were dismissed as toys for various
reasons ; Apple only had the AppleScript SDK ; and
Symantec had left the market when it realised it just
couldn't compete and refocused on
utilities/anti-virus.

Now Apple has the ProjectBuilder/InterfaceBuilder ;
SuperCard got revamped ; the MetaCard-engine and
RuntimeRevolution-caboose provide a cross-platform
train ; the java tools have dramatically improved ...
So it's a different environment all together, and
maybe MacWorldUK should reconsider -- or should we
replace the 'maybe' with a 'definitely' ?
