OpenStep, GNUstep Objective Modula-2 (or ObjM2) is an extension to Modula-2 which follows the Objective-C object model and retains the bracketed Smalltalk message passing syntax introduced in Objective-C. Like Objective-C, Objective Modula-2 is a reflective, object oriented programming language with both static and dynamic typing. It is intended as a safer alternative to Objective-C for Cocoa and GNUstep software development.

Oberon is uninteresting for several reasons. 1) the guys doing the work on Objective Modula 2 are the people working on Gnu Modula 2. 2) Oberon is object oriented already, the objective extension to Modula 2 is supposed to make Modula 2 object oriented. 3) the object orient extension to Modula is supposed to make it integrate with objective-c based environments (cocoa and gnustep) easy, hence the syntax is similar and the object model is the same.
