OpenStep, GNUstep I don't really know what Sony wants with this, but they're using GNUstep, so that's something, I guess. "Sony's Networked Application Platform is a project designed to leverage the open source community to build and evolve the next generation application framework for consumer electronic devices. The developer program gives access to a developer community and resources like SDK, tools, documentation and other developers. The foundation upon which this project is base comes from the GNUstep community, whose origin dates back to the OpenStep standard developed by NeXT Computer Inc (now Apple Computer Inc.). While Apple has continued to update their specification in the form of Cocoa and Mac OS X, the GNUstep branch of the tree has diverged considerably."

Forgive me of saying this. I thought GNUstep died a year ago. But please, I hope there are more updates to this wonderful Objective-C piece of work.


I can imagine how their marketing is spinning this.

"Everyone thought GNUStep is dead. Think again. We are starting to use it in a mission critical role, starting next yer".

The language and the API are far from dead. They are beating competition left an right, especially in the mobile segment.

I agree. OTOH if Puredarwin had suceeded we should have seen a NeXT renaissance.
