Window Managers The new 0.4 version of Etoile had just been released. Etoile intends to be an innovative, GNUstep-based, user environment built from the ground up on highly modular and light components. It is created with project and document orientation in mind, in order to allow users to create their own workflow by reshaping or recombining provided Services (aka Applications) and Components. 0.4 is a developer-targeted release on its way towards this goal. As a developer-focussed release, this predominantly consists of frameworks. A few demonstration applications are also included.

I fail to see the point of this project other than to slap on a plug-ugly (aqua-inspired - what else)theme on a still great desktop.
The original NEXT/OPEN/GNUstep effort is still the benchmark in desktop design with its utilitarian and unadultered approach to usability, not least having been created by some of the finest minds in the industry. And to have a bunch of amateurs undermime it with such a derivitive eye-sore is just sad
