    It would be really cool if someone made a converter that would allow us to make all our previous apps compatible with 2.0 with Xcode. Will this ever come?

    dont think so... think how long it took to port pwnage to windows. Imagine having to convert every single app to be Xcode, and there would still be no way on windows to put it onto the ipod/phone

    oh btw, i know pwnage isnt Xcode, i think

    I dont think its as simple as converting it. I think they have to be completely rewritten.

    True.
    You can't just convert code.
    Plus, the frameworks have been messed with; some former public ones have been made private.

    The only way we will ever see an Xcode "LIKE" App is if Microsoft decides to partner with Apple and Integrate Parts of Xcode into Visual Studio.
