Do you really need a mac?

Yes. The iOS SDK, compiler, and IDE only run on OS X. I'm in the same boat. I was pretty meh about Apple until I had to use a Mac everyday for development work. Now I hate them with every fiber of my being.

You can install OS X inside a virtual machine (I'm using VMware Workstation). Just use google to find a guide.

Obj-C is built on top of C, just like C++ is built on top of C as well. Either Obj-C or C++ is easier to use than C for most programmers, you'll likely want to learn C either way.

I helped develop an app last year as part of my senior project in Obj C using iOS SDK 5. Really was glad they got rid of manual reference counting, as that could be a pain. Coding what you wanted in Objective C was generally very easy, although I always had this feeling that the code was about to escape my control and eat me alive.

When a sent message doesn't get a response from an object because you're a noob (I had this issue a lot), don't expect a nice error, or that debugging will be very easy.

It's more work, different and harder to use. [Compared to C++]
