I think this is a good idea. We certainly need to be positive as Aaron's book
was a boon for GNUstep. The corrections I posted on the webste were not
criticisms so much as they were simply... well... corrections of things that he
I think the list of things you've mentioned are good. I think, as you've
said, it's best to approach things from where GNUstep is today. I will let you
know, if I think of anything.

there's a podcast called CocoaCast <http://www.cocoacast.com> by
Boris Klaydman and Russell Homsy, where they go through the chapters
of Hillegass' "Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X" book discussing the
concepts therein. Well, I've been asked to join them in an episode
on GNUstep ;-). Any suggestions of things to talk about would be
welcome, bear in mind the audience is likely to be Cocoa-centric, but
mainly Cocoa newbies.
I thought of trying to avoid explicitly complaining about problems in
the GNUstep chapter of the book, and instead describing the current
state of GNUstep play. In that:
- overview of the components -make, -base, -gui, -back and how
they're analogous to Cocoa Foundation/AppKit
- code portability between Cocoa and GNUstep (and using -make and -
base with Cocoa lib combo), NIB support, Windows/Linux/etc. platforms
- Summer of Code (there may be a few students listening to the
- some apps (mainly dev-apps like ProjectCentre and GORM)
- GUI theming, possibly...
any amendments or additions would be muchly welcome ;-). I've asked
for write access to the wiki, once I've got that I'll create a page
with an outline of the podcast material. I don't know yet when the
episode will be recorded.
