XCode is *almost* enough to make me want to be a Mac-only developer... 
and then I remember that I have bills to pay.  ;-)

Naw. I'm not heading the Java route. Not productive enough. Today's 
choices for X-plat application development, (rather than multimedia 
where Director still reigns supreme) are RealBasic and Revolution. They 
both have their advantages. Currently, Revolution is in the lead for me 
as it is more generally versatile, can be extremely productive and 
offers more delivery techniques in addition to being more truly X-plat 
coding. If that could be strengthened with more graphics functionality 
(both 2D and 3D) I probably wouldn't bother looking around, or needing 
to constantly switch tools based on project requirements.
