    This story would be more informative if it included a project status report. Such as "Another year has passed and GNUStep is close to reaching 60% compatibility with OPENSTEP 4.0. Three Cheers to the 1 and half guys working on GNUStep every third weekend!"

    Not to discourage anyone, but GNUStep has to be the most seriously overhyped project in the open source world. It moves like a snail, and runs no applications and is based on a programming language that nobody wants to use and is generally useless. Even though OpenStep clawed it's way out of the grave, there's still only like 20 programmers that use it.

    Why not cover the interesting stuff where there's some development action -- VirtualDub or some of the other video stuff, for example.

    Oh, I don't know. I'll be giving it a try since I want something more lightweight than GNOME or KDE and less band-wagon oriented (.NET/C++).
    I also fancy learning a bit of Objective-C.
