Adventures in Cocotron

Glen Aspeslagh (via John Gruber):

Back in August, we decided that we should have a Windows version of our FileMagnet Uploader, a Mac application which connects to the iPhone via Bonjour and moves files back and forth between the desktop and our FileMagnet iPhone app. If you’ve been in this situation before, you know how much fun a line-by-line Windows port can be. Not only do you have to spend weeks hunched over Visual Studio, re-writing your entire program in a different language, but when you’re done you now have two separate code bases to manage. When a friend recommended that we check out Cocotron as an alternative, we were quite skeptical but agreed to try it out.
