Agree -- When I have a new project, I usually find myself leaning towards
ObjC unless there's a really good reason to use something else. It's just a
great language that's stood the test of time

Thank you Josh for sharing this. I remember fondly reading Brad Cox's book
while i was still at University. The concept of Soft-ICs, reusable software
components, won me over for Objective-C. So even a long time before starting
to contributing to GNUstep  I learned and liked the language.
Thank you Brad for giving it to us!
