OpenStep, GNUstep

After almost 8 years (we talked about it, of course), a new version of the GNUSTEP live CD has been released - version 2.5, for amd64. The live CD is based on Debian 9, has low hardware requirements, and uses Linux 4.9 with compressed RAM and no systemd. The live CD is a very easy and non-destructive way of testing out and playing with GNUSTEP, a free software implementation of OPENSTEP.

It's been a long, long time since I got to use our glorious *STEP database category. Isn't that one beautiful icon?

I also spent some time there on the past, and for a few years I even used AfterStep followed by WindowMaker as my main window managers.

But given that most of their talks at FOSDEM were related to building theme engines, catching up with Panther and they lacked a workable Objective-C 2.x implementation, it was clear it would go nowhere.
