OpenStep, GNUstep The releases just keep on coming, don't they? The GNUstep live CD has been updated "The GNUstep live CD contains a lot of software for GNUstep, a free implementation of the OPENSTEP framework (which was also the base as Cocoa in Mac OS X)." The GNUstep page can tell you more about GNUstep itself.

There is however a difference between 'simplistic' and 'ugly'. I hate eye candy too, and am a quite happy user of dwm. I know it is personal but I think GNUstep is ugly. Not because there is too little eye candy but because imo the colours a badly chosen, the shades feel strange and the style uses in icons seem to be random. It seems there is no consistency at all.

I think if it was simpler ( eg. remove the shades, making all icons flat and the same etc. ) it would be more beautiful.

That's true. I really don't like the shading either.

heh, I'm happy at a full screen terminal with just text ;)
