Thank you. I keep trying to go back and install GNUSTEP on my computers and begin developing. After a few hours reading the mailing lists, I get depressed and give up. The same idiots who absolutely REFUSE to bring GNUSTEP out of the 90's are still there. THIS system SHOULD BE WHERE GNOME AND KDE are. Instead there are a a bunch of purists there who wont take any kind of forward looking suggestions. And forget Etoile. Its a bunch of "Kits"/"Services" thats confusing and disjointed. They whole lot of them make me sad. Real sad. Remember Miguel actually tried to help on gnustep, but left and started gnome.

GNUSTEP/WM, wake up already.


Already done....
