General Development There are two major varieties of Cocoa available. The first variety, possibly the more well known of the two, is the kind that you can use to make a nice warm cup of chocolate milk. While tasty, it's hardly proper subject matter for an operating systems information site. The second variety is far more on-topic: a programming environment for Apple Mac OS X that is the modern evolution of of the original NeXTSTEP frameworks. That's what I'm here to talk about today.

OpenStep -> GNUstep, not Cocoa -> GNUstep

OK, I see what you all are saying. GNUstep is based on OpenStep, as is Cocoa, but both add on to that original spec in different ways, therefore, GNUstep is not a "clone" of Cocoa, but rather OpenStep. OK, that sounds logical. Since I'm not familiar with exactly what Cocoa has added to OpenStep, I didn't realize the extent of the differences.

Thanks for the clarification.
