There is even place for more options to discuss.

E.g. Objective-C + GNUstep + X11.

A very similar technology (called iPhone...) has created a lot of  
hype recently because it is said to provide the best UI experience in  
mobile phones.

But I agree that these dicsussion are not constructive - since there  
is no need for a community consensus. Everybody must decide him/ 
herself which platform best fits the needs. The community can only  
provide pros and cons.
