  1. XCode

    Hi to all! I have never seen a live MacOS installation and I am not familiar with the available apps. I am a developer and development environment provided by MacOS interests me most. Linux is my preferred platform (for now), but MacOS seems very attractive as it managed to make Unix friendly like no other Unix clone did. I have heard about the XCode IDE provided with the MacOS installation. My question is simple: Is it possible/feasible to develop under XCode and MacOS dev-platform apllications for Linux (or any other POSIX compatible Unix clone) without too much overhead of porting? More precisely: Is MacOS enough POSIX compatible (if at all) and does XCode provide the means to manage a common build environment for a large project that spans MacOS, Linux, *nix, ... and thus must be built on any of those platforms? Thanks in advance.
