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."

Oh, what did you make think so? Given that I develop incessantly on GNUstep and GAP and during the past two years there were releases of libraries, frameworks, applications and blog posts...
Was there a certain post or blog that made you think us dead? I'm curious.

IMO, GNUstep is not exposed to the mainstream news often and I don't like to see Objective C underutilized.

It's just that most people don't run GNUstep as an X GUI any more. It's all GNOME now.
