Heh. Can't we all stick to the standardized world of GTK and QT in modern Linux GUI design? Things have been going great consistency-wise lately, and I'd hate to see something like this relic from the nineties come back to haunt my desktop.

1) GNUStep doesn't just run on Linux.
2) Calling GNUStep a relic while implying that GTK is modern is just ... laughable.
3) Objective-C and the GNUStep/Cocoa framework provide an interesting alternative to standard C/C++ frameworks.

On a side note, they really need to make GNUStep more accessible to normal users. More Cocoa compatibility wouldn't hurt either.

Standardized? GTK? You GOT to be joking.

And speaking of a 'modern' design, running GNUstep off a P3-550 with 128M Ram is a breeze. Don't even think of launching KDE on that box. It will crawl to a halt in just a few seconds...
