GNUStep was my primary environment for a year: then I got a Mac. I am setting up an email server now, and if I need a GUI for some reason, I will use the GNUStep environment again. I love it for its simplicity and speed. Its the one DE that I did not need to force to my workflow.
I've used XFCE (Made it look like BeOS), GNOME(I only like it with XFWM as the manager), KDE (ugh! ;) Used it when GNOME was trashier), and blackbox(when all I did was code. Its wonderful for that... keeps you focused, but a pain to configure).
Sometimes I wished MacOS X worked like GNUStep does (I know it used to).

Hmm, I need some elightment about this. I found that Cocoa along with XCode is working very well. GNUStep = Cocoa - Aqua (that's ugly). And I experienced that installing GNUStep requires big effort, like Aaron Hillegass said in his book.

GNUStep seems to be based more directly on NeXT/OPENStep, while OS X took some inspiration from those, but on a lot of points felt they could do better and made a bunch of changes. OS X has been diverging more and more over the years. Many times those changes where for the better and sometimes (in my opinion) not.
