OpenStep, GNUstep Every so often I have this urge (maybe more of an itch) to spend hours and hours on the web trying to find information about old, obsolete computers of the past. I am intrigued by the XEROX Alto and Star ('70s-'82), the Apple Lisa ('83) and, of course, CRAYs ('75-ish). These were revolutionary machines indeed, they wrote golden pages in the history of computing. In the end of the 1980s, a new innovative product was ready to ship, created by a bunch of people coming from Apple: The NeXT platform.

GNUstep is much more complete than the article suggests. As a long time contributor to the project and as the current maintainer of Gorm (the InterfaceBuilder application for GNUstep) I can say that the OpenStep API as defined is fully implemented except for a few classes which are almost never used.

GNUstep also has many of the extensions that Mac OS X has added to OpenStep over the years. For more information please see and

Thanks, GJC
