I probably won't be buying a Mac any time soon, but I am interested in following OpenStep and using ObjC/Cocoa framework on x86. Its interesting to see a reference to hosting GS even on BeOS under "Installation of GNUstep".

My only criticism is that the NS look seems tired & dated, where the OSX look is overdone for my tastes. I'd like to see NS brought up to date a little, at least a little more use of color. It doesn't help that ObjC books are a rare these days although I keep an eye out.

Without really having read a NS/Cocoa app, it seems to me that it allows an app to be built more Lego/schematic style, building up from smaller components to bigger & bigger modules, where C++ frameworks come at it the other way around, planning & then impementing top down.
