OpenStep, GNUstep During FOSDEM 2007, a live CD using the Etoile desktop environment was demonstrated, and this live CD can now be downloaded (screenshots inside the link, boys and girls). Etoile is a desktop environment based on GNUstep. "This is the 0.2 prerelease that we worked on at FOSDEM 2007. There's still quite a lot of problems on it (check the bugtracker), so we expect the final 0.2 release in about a month. In the meantime, feel free to download the iso and to play with it."

Note though that while the "visual" difference (the graphical theme) can be reduced... the actual behaviour of the apps won't -- no services menu in kde/gnome apps, etc.

If I'm not mistaken though, one of the advantages to GNUStep is that it allows developers to write apps that can also be compiled and run natively under OS X. (E.g., GNUMail - http://www.collaboration-world.com/cgi-bin/project/index.cgi?pid=2 ).
