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."

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.

Not sure I understand this. I mean, I have an interpretation, but it requires you wife to be a computer...

I meant for her to be functional using the computer.

I just installed gworkspace on my work machine and ran it. Sadly it reminded me of why I had a negative reaction the very first time I sat down at a NeXT workstation (one of those cool black cubes). I don't like the intrusiveness of the workspace manager.
