I don't know why you believe this is not the norm. I have no numbers, but I am
pretty sure that C++ and Obj-C are the two main languages used by Mac developers
today, and they both have significant market share. Just because most (if not
all) cross-platform frameworks are inadequate for professional Mac development
(primarily due to lack of focus on user experience) doesn't mean there aren't
Mac-only C++ frameworks in use today.
