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?

The problem here is that Window Maker is based on WINGS (Wings Is Not Gnu Step). So the central element of the GUI uses a different widget system, that looks more or less the same, but has its own libraries.

Etoile was addressing this, but the new window manager was never finished

... or was it? "Azalea" is deprecated again and replaced with something new
