Potential for GNUstep

Many things are happening right now with respect to GNUstep, that it's almost scary. There are opportunities that have been brought to my attention that I cannot talk about at the moment, but I can simply say that they could be very good for GNUstep's future.

It's hard not to be nervous at times like these.

Indeed, GNUstep has great potential. While some people ask for features that would be "against" GNUstep philosophy, there are many other places where GNUstep would fit perfectly.
GNUstep suffers both from some shortcomings in the core libraries (think about slow image and scroll handling, about lousy windows port and the bugs here and there) as well as the lack or imperfection of its applications. But GNUstep lacks much more exposure and polish. get an Ubuntu live cd and watch the GNOME environment there. Leaving aside my feelings against Gentoo and the fact tact that I find the user interface and design of gnome and GTK really abd and ugly... I cannot not notice the polish everything has, the smoothnes in how the control panels, the applictions, terminals, menus mold together in a single experience. GNUstep lacks that.

Although for many applications and uses it wouldn't be a great loss, it doesn't attract the attention of the users and developers.

One could say that GNUstep is an very nice woman, but without proper make-up and with a shabby dress. Although the expert eye could see the star sparkle, the average person maybe would prefer a more normal female with choosen make-up and dress.


I hope it is clear that I don't refer to "themes" here but the comparison means a much wider concept of "aspect and appeal".

Ditto.

I've started munching around with Objective C, OpenStep, etc. for the last three months.

I even bought WebObjects 4.0 to get up started... mainly cause I use PC at work (but ibook@home), and also because GNUSTEP still has some problems with cygwin - even today it did not get compiled.

Another thing is the non-nativess of GNUSTEP on Windows - I preffer the YellowBox on Windows way - where the menus are actually attached to the windows (as other win apps), while on Mac OS X - I'm fine with the latter being on top.

yeah... little things like that.
