OpenStep, GNUstep I don't really know what Sony wants with this, but they're using GNUstep, so that's something, I guess. "Sony's Networked Application Platform is a project designed to leverage the open source community to build and evolve the next generation application framework for consumer electronic devices. The developer program gives access to a developer community and resources like SDK, tools, documentation and other developers. The foundation upon which this project is base comes from the GNUstep community, whose origin dates back to the OpenStep standard developed by NeXT Computer Inc (now Apple Computer Inc.). While Apple has continued to update their specification in the form of Cocoa and Mac OS X, the GNUstep branch of the tree has diverged considerably."

The problem you have with Cocotron is that the primary mission statement of the guys working on in (Christopher Lloyd being the lead IIRC) is that it is intended to be used on a Mac to cross compile for other targets. So, in essence, you need a Mac to develop apps. The benefit of Gnustep should be that you can run it on any supported platform and develop natively. You can. It just doesn't work very well most of the time.
