According to the survey, 29 percent of developers plan to release Mac OS X software within one to three months and 26 percent will to release a product within four to six months.
The percentage of developers supporting Mac OS X jumps to 75 percent when asked if they would release Mac OS X compatible software within the next year.
Apple says that a large percentage of developers were using Java and Objective C as their programming language — the exact percentage of these developers was not released. One-third of the developers surveyed were using Apple’s Project Builder IDE as their development tool of choice. Project Builder ships with Mac OS X and is also available from Apple’s Developer Web site.
Other findings of the survey include: three out of four Mac OS platform developers surveyed are currently writing applications that are able to take advantage of Mac OS X native features; and 35 percent of professional developers who intend to create new products or new versions of existing Mac OS products say they plan to use the Cocoa frameworks.
