I cannot get Etoile to compile. The one screen shot I have been able to find does not look like anything I want on my computer. I am under the impression that it forces you into horizontal menus which I don't want and some theme which I also don't want, the flowers in the screen shot I found made me not even want to pursue figuring it out. There are some interesting things in Etoile such as the idea of being able to use a BASH script as a service, I wish some of those things would migrate into GNUstep.

That being said, GNUstep has been in development for 15 years, are the current efforts primarily aimed at making it a clone of OSX?

Consider it more like a OpenStep compatible clone of Cocoa. There won't be something like Carbon or an OS kernel anytime soon.

Saying that GNUstep is nothing but a development environment is a bit of a cop-out, like taking 15 years of development.

For a desktop environment you likely want to have a look at the Etoile project.

Actually, I consider GNUstep being (more than a few years ago) just a development environment (and Etoile being just a desktop environment) is perfectly fine, like in "Do one thing and do that right".
