Some people like it, but I think the Mac OS toolbox is a collection of
ugly hacks, much like (and due to many of the same reasons) as the
16-bit Windows API.  Carbon is marginally better, and Cocoa is downright
heavenly by comparison.  In fact, I'd say that Cocoa compares pretty
favorably with Java in terms of completeness and extensibility, while
maintaining the terse elegance of C.
