Steve Jobs Weighs In On iPhone Programming Language Mandate

Dotnaught writes “Greg Slepak, founder of software company Tao Effect, wrote Apple CEO Steve Jobs to complain about Apple’s mandate that iPhone applications be originally written in C/C++/Objective-C. Job’s response was to endorse a post by John Gruber on the Daring Fireball blog. Jobs called it ‘very insightful,’ suggesting Gruber’s prediction that third-party iPhone development tools are out might be right. Jobs sent a second reply that also doesn’t bode well for third-party iPhone development tools: ‘We’ve been there before, and intermediate layers between the platform and the developer ultimately produces sub-standard apps and hinders the progress of the platform.’”
