when you said
That is true, the xcode software us free. However, the implication is not true: Apple does charge developers for the privilege of developing to their platform. So yes, you do have to buy the "dev kit" if you want to develop for the me platform. I didn't say anything about whether this was a good thing or a bad thing, or whether Apple is the only one who does this (they aren't) or anything else.
Now stop trying to argue with me, I don't give a shit what platform you develop for or what big corporation's T-shirt you want to wear. It's fine, do what you like, just stop arguing at me.
