A few days ago I read an article mentioning, among other things, GNUstep and
how 'cool' (my choice of words) it would be if/when/whether 'these guys'
(ie. the developers of GNUstep) would decide to put GNUstep on top of their
OWN operating system instead of 'screwing around with existing systems
resulting in symlinks all over the place' (again, my choice of words) and
'imagine GNUstep on a Mach based kernel.'

I hate those symlinks too. and GNUstep being in /usr/lib/GNUstep on Debian is too far away from either / or /usr/GNUstep . My suggestion
to put it to either of the latter two wasn't welcome.

My first thought was along a distribution based on (Open)Darwin. However,
with respect to the recent news about Darwin/OSX x86 and DRM, I guess this
would be a 'no go.'

AFAIK, xMach is dead :-( So does anyone know how far Hurd is with respect to

GNU/Hurd got quite much more stable during the last half year. I haven't tried it recently. But there's also efforts for L4.
I think that's an older screenshot of ratmice (Matt Rice):

And some other person in #gnustep was talking about his own OS without X
and GNUstep, I don't remember his nick though...
