OpenStep, GNUstep The releases just keep on coming, don't they? The GNUstep live CD has been updated "The GNUstep live CD contains a lot of software for GNUstep, a free implementation of the OPENSTEP framework (which was also the base as Cocoa in Mac OS X)." The GNUstep page can tell you more about GNUstep itself.

Sorry but I thought that NeXTStep looked bad in 1988. It may be elegant, but if it doesn't have appeal, other than its elegance, it's going to end up in a museum, not on someone's desktop. Moreso, for an optional desktop environment.


Sorry, but that is really your personal opinion. I thought NeXT looked great back then.. .and it still looks fine. I love an UI which doesn't come into your way. Also it is a nice combination of Look and Ergonomics, since many details of the GUI are not designed with the same user access guidelines as windows.

After all, compare win95 to win31. Look at the style of the widgets, the colors (not the ugly icons). They maintained most of the old windows feel, but the Look is clearly NeXT inspired! For me, the first thing to do on XP or Vista is to turn of the plastic/rubber look.
