Personally, I don't think there is anything that could be done to make me use PC. I'm not saying that PC is bad, but from my perspective it doesn't fill a need that exists. I say the same thing about PB on OPENSTEP, by the

As I said before, PC is currently far away from being mature and feature complete. But I wonder then why people are always claiming that the duo PC+Gorm could be a good reason for using GNUstep and at the same time it is so little in use. The article in Linux Journal did not even mention ProjectCenter...

BTW arguments for PC would be automatic makefile creation, easier file management/handling, seamless CVS integration via a GUI or a much nicer debugging experience in the future, ...

It is IMHO too late for GNUstep to compete with KDE or Gnome, but it is
(hopefully) not too late for a GNUSTEP/linux or a GNUSTEP/FreeBSD or
even a GNUSTEP/Hurd (kind of the real successor to OPENSTEP/Mach) :-)

Nonsense. Just like in the proprietary software world we are in competition with other projects, and from looking at the visibility we have, the number of GNUstep developers and so on, we pretty much lost this one, it seems (unless you are OK with GNUstep being a library set written by a few developers to be used by a few others...).
