SimplyGNUStep
by William Ray Barker on Fri 4th Apr 2003 15:47 UTC

I have only tried running SimplyGNUStep, so I can't comment on GNUStep totally... I do like that GNUStep can be cross platform, but I really wish that GNUStep would have a perfered platform that they can base directory structure around. I know this is the aim for LinuxStep, as well as SimplyGNUStep... but they need a focus more for a NextStep upgrade/clone. SimplyGNUStep, as I recall was just WindowMaker with a program that ran over top of it. If you closed out the GNUStep file manager you were back to WindowMaker. All WindowsMaker ever needed was a NextStep clone of a file manager. I rather dislike that menu in the left top corner in NextStep but I could live with it... Running over WindowMaker needs to stop,either run there own server other then WindowMaker, or take WindowMaker source and write into it.
