    All,

    I'm looking for "the" way to develop for the touch/iphone without a mac. I'm unconcerned about platform (be it Linux or Windows), and will go either way. Is there a definitive "Here's how you do it.. go"?. I've followed many random thoughts, and attempted to get the toolchain together on an Ubuntu system some months ago, but was not able to get anything to compile.

    So, I am going to approach this from a completely clean slate.
    Of course this is all 2.x stuff.

    Thanks!

    well u can always run mac os x in vmware and try to work with xcode, and then get a real mac and adc standar for iphone if u want, but for u to be able to do the virtualization u should buy a copy of mac os x and a license for vmware workstation (either for win or nix, works ok with both). I started like that, really liked xcode (cgywin and toolkit on iphone are a pain), so now i decided to get a mbp and to apply for adc standard iphone dev.
    Hope this helps with your decission
