It is based on the original OpenStep specification provided by NeXT, Inc. (now owned by Apple and endorced into MacOSX). OSNews is hosting an interview with Adam Fedor, of the GNUstep project, where Adam mentions among others that GnuStep has support for the MacOSX API too, which will make porting MacOSX applications to Linux much easier."

    Did he say stuff that matters?

    I can give you an unbiased opinion:

    NeXT API is a lot like java (well thought out OO design), but without the heavy abstraction to support the native UI underneath, and without the bytecode crap.

    MFC is like having sex while wearing 7 condoms.

    Most XWindows widget sets (the exception being KDE) are like a rusted out '83 station wagon, hed together with duct tape and bondo, carrying half a dozen pimple faced teenagers. The floors are covered with evidence of fast-food drive thru visits, and there's a funky odor. Chances are, the driver will stall it at the next stop sign, and the muffler needs replacing. The occupants, however, are glad they don't have to walk.

    GNUStep is not popular for one reason. It is damn ugly. I guess when it gets aqua then it will look like the annoying over sugary OSX apps but I'm not sure that is really an improvement over Qt or GTK since you can make those look like whatever you want. The only good thing about this project is that we may see big time apps from adobe and other companies finally being ported to linux. Check out some of their "And (did I mention this already?) it looks good" (from GNUStep Info) screenshots. [gnustep.it]
