Is the Raspberry Pi able to support the mac x-code programming software?  I am really new to this mini-computer concept and have no clue whether or not it will be able to support x-code.  Thank you very much!

It will not run x-code. You need a Mac for that.

You can use objective-c under Linux - gcc supports it and so does clang (though not sure what the state of Clang is for this cpu). But there aren't a lot of libraries for an objective-c programmer on Linux. Forget all the iOS an OS X stuff. There is the GNUStep stuff that is based on Next which predates OS X. It probably isn't going to be much fun beyond learning the basics of Objective-C.
