    Carbon is not "a MacOS9 app with an OSX wrapper." And not just because there is no such thing as MacOS, let alone MacOS9, nor OSX (no, I won't shut up about it [perl.org] :). Carbon is first-class citizen on Mac OS X, and a Carbon app is, by definition, a native Mac OS X app. However, that's not to say that Carbon doesn't have problems that Cocoa doesn't have, and Cocoa can take more advantage of Mac OS X features than Carbon can.

    But it's not accurate to say that Carbon is "Mac OS" and Cocoa is "Mac OS X." Both Carbon and Cocoa are Mac OS X.
