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.

While the true goal of GNUstep is to be an OpenStep implementation, it's also right to say that quasi all the additional classes from Cocoa are implemented (with the minus of NSDrawer and NSToolbar -- and yet some people seems to works a bit on them). In fact, the major problem when porting cocoa->gnustep is eventually the lack of ObjC++ (and of course of the proprietary frameworks also available on Mac (quicktime...) that could be used by an application). So imho, people should be aware of the different goals and possible differences, yes, but overall both platforms are quite compatible.
