First, no.Second, it's not either or anyway.There is no real reason why swift can't be as efficient...it depends on the compiler. Also Java can be compiled to native binary if desired. The syntax isn't all that relevant. Google could do that tomorrow if they wanted. C++/CX is MS' version for WinRT.Except that developer productivity also means faster time to market and, in this case, even more developer lock in.

Go shi! Did I miss that in the book? Shiney!
It's 2014. I'm freaking tired of .h files and c language syntax cruft. A more modern language is a welcome replacement for ObjC/C/C++. ObjC is effectively useless outside the Apple ecosystem anyway.
We'll metal does. Should be interesting how well they can abstract that across all the various iOS hardware.I'm through about the same. Yah, I never got the excitement about type inference.
The old guys looked sullen to me. The young guys were more excited. The old guys probably don't want to learn yet another language.
 Same project.  Not same file.
 For a 10x improvement I'd code to metal if I were going to write in either ObjC or Swift.  For cross platform most indies will use something like Unity anyway.
They're all doing a decent job presenting but I still miss Steve.
So does not reading a thread before posting on it.
