When I was looking into Objective C (more than 10 years ago), I found that that language is almost (but not entirely) unlike C. Still it’s true that it is „compatible“, as in every valid C program is also a valid Objective C program. But if you want to use these nice Objective C features, you don’t program C-style. So, this compatibility is 100% true but 100% useless information, much like in that old joke:
(still wondering why this joke is about Microsoft and not Apple).

Java, on the other hand, is much more C-like, but not compatible.
