Not sure about that, but it may be because I was used to Objective-C. A
bit verbose, yes, and global selectors left me a bit perplexed.
Anyway, I had a quick look and Swift and it looks to me like Objective-C
in a candy wrapping. Nothing revolutionary at first glance (I may have
missed it, though); no conceptual leap for sure.
Are willSet and didSet an original idea, or are there languages offering
a similar shortcut for properties with side effects?
Anyway, I have been burned too many times by languages controlled by a
single company, especially from a company which actively enforces prompt
obsolescence. I'll pass :-)
