Yeah, what he said

Marco Arment: “But the biggest reason why there’s no iPhone SDK on Windows or Linux is that it doesn’t need to exist. The iPhone is the premier platform where the most money is being made. Developers will come to Apple — Apple doesn’t need to come to developers. (Google does, as the underdog.) It’s the same reason why there’s no OS X or Linux port of Microsoft Visual Studio, and you don’t see a lot of Mac owners yelling at Microsoft for not porting its sophisticated development environment to their chosen operating system.” – I really like this Marco guy. He’s about as blunt as can be, but he makes fine points. He’s also the creator of Instapaper, an application that’s quickly becoming my favorite little utility.
