GnuStep was always hobbled, I believe, because no one wants to deal with Objective C. Yes, it may be easy to learn and powerful, but its world is too narrow - just OpenStep and Cocoa, for people to want to devote their time to it.

Apple has created Java bindings to the openStep/Cocoa API, but I'm not sure how popular they are, or if GnuStep supports them.

objective-c is a fairly simple, and extremely powerful language. Any developer with enough sense who's productive in c or c++ can pick up objective c and master it in days to weeks. if you skim through my tutorial at you can get some easy examples running in an hour.
