OpenStep, GNUstep "A little over one year after the 1.0 release, I'm happy to announce the 1.6 release of the GNUstep Objective-C runtime. This provides a superset of the functionality of Apple's Mac OS X 10.7/iOS 5 runtimes and provides a solid foundation for Objective-C and Objective-C++ development on Free Software platforms."

Very nice. I downloaded the documentation and checked it out.

How far do you plan on taking it? Will you be implementing any sort of GUI toolkit?

The documentation on the homepage is of the quite old 0.5 release. Be sure to check out the developer version and type doxygen there to get an up-to-date documentation. It includes a lot of classes more now ;) .

As for the UI framework, the problem is that it's hard to have an abstraction for UIs that does look native anywhere - that's almost impossible, I guess. Maybe the better way is to just create bindings to common toolkits and have similar APIs so it's easy to port from one toolkit to another.
