Please enlighten me, is gnustep really used for building serious application? With interface like WindowMaker, I doubt it will be popular in linux. Last time I tried in windows, it's full of problems to compile and run an application.

I like objective-c and nextstep platform very much, but currently I think only macosx-cocoa get it right.

Window Maker has nothing to do with GNUstep, except that it kinda looks identical, and is the so-called preferred window manager. However, it doesn't make USE of GNUstep.

That said, yes, there are a couple of serious applications. GNUMail is one of them. Another one would be Adun ( http://193.146.190.210:8080/Adun ).

For a reasonable up-to-date list of applications, take a look at http://mediawiki.gnustep.org/index.php/Category:Applications

GNUstep on Windows is rather problematic ATM. GNUstep on Posix-compatible platforms is however a completely different issue.

And yes. There is several serious applications written with GNUstep.

Gnustep can be very good looking if you use the new Nesedah theme, the theme also have a gtk2 port on xfce-look.org, so you can use gtk and gnustep with the same look and feel.
