GNUstep for Windows state?

What is the current state of GNUstep for Windows for GUI apps? The 
GNUstep web site seems a little vague about what actually works on 
Windows. Are people actively working on GNUstep for Windows?

Is GNUstep a viable option for new Windows development? I'd like to use 
GNUstep in place of MFC for new development on Windows (Mac OS X may be 
desired at some point as well).

Does GNUstep work with Metrowerks CodeWarrior for Windows (or Mac) or 
only command-line tools? Are there native Windows apps to design GNUstep 
user interfaces? Can Mac Interface Builder NIB's be converted to be 
GNUstep compatible?

The gdi backend seems far to be complete and AppKit have some *nix only
code (like NSWorkspace)

It seems people are working on: specialy Foundation

I don't think GNUstep is viable *yet* for Windows....but I suppose
contributions are welcome

> Does GNUstep work with Metrowerks CodeWarrior for Windows (or Mac)
no idea (probably not). I hink GNUstep developpers will try to finish 
ProjectCenter before start extention for propriatory softwares...

GNUstep Makefiles are very easy to use.

No nibs are propriatory and the format doesn't allow this things.

Gorm is the IB clone.
