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."

I'm sorry to hear that you have problems with the Ubuntu packages, maybe you should bug Ubuntu about them?
The packages on Debian are usually a bit out of date, but they do work. Sadly many applications are missing, so the already small palette of GNustep application is further restricted.

As a GNUstep core and application developer, I have one of my main development machines running Debian. Thus I can assure you that at least when using "source" against all debian packages and dependencies, GNUstep works smoothly, I test it daily.

The gnustep packages in Ubuntu are really crap. gentoo (which is my preferred distribution) is much better, even if it is not the most gnustep friendly distribution. Personally I like the combination of gnustep libraries, x.org, windowmaker and gworkspace. It is much more responsive than the equivalent using gnome libraries, metacity and nautilus.

thanks for the heads up on gworkspace. For software development I've been using windowmaker for years. For my wife to be functional I've had to switch over most of my machines to xfce. Hopefully this is useable.
