    Lightbulb [SDK] Would it be possible to port to Windows?

    I was wondering if it would be possible for someone with the SDK to port it to Windows. I am sure that it would take a long time to port, considering how long it is taking for PWNAGE to be ported. But I think if many advanced developers helped to port this to windows they could do it. I do not even know if it possible, as I am sure there are frameworks or somehting that Mac OS X has that Windows doesnt. But I would ANY type of SDK for Windows... I am trying to learn how to create apps and I have two apps that I have my goals set on. One is MUCH harder than the other.

    Thanks for your time,
    DJ McG

    Sorry, but porting the whole SDK to windows is an impossibility due to it's integration with Xcode and the fact that the tools are closed source. The only reason why PWNAGE could ever be ported is because the source is available.

    Oh, I see... That sucks... Maybe some developer could create an SDK specifically for windows. I guess Windows user are stuck with obj-c or java/jiggy for now.

    Thanks,

    IIRC, there is a windows toolchain available (don't quote me, im not a dev ), and a solution for hacking together SDK apps may or may not pop up in the future, but all the tools, like the performance analyzer, the simulator, interface builder, they will never be ported to windows unless Apple sees fit.

    Also, even if a method for creating sdk apps on windows pops up, I doubt that there would be any way to actually get it approved by apple and into the app store, so there's really not much to look forward to, unfortunately.
