Its seems that the programming framework with Objective-C was NeXTStep's main advantage. Duplicating the NeXT system (or OSX for that matter) just seems kinda silly to me. NeXTStep was and is great, but unless it is actively being improved beyond its originial state, it will eventually fall behind other systems (it already looks out-of-date - superficial, I know). Is there any way the framework could be linked up (efficiently) to KDE or Gnome (or even just QT or GTK+)? GNUstep just seems destined to remain a small niche (of a niche) otherwise.
