Good to hear.

Can someone recommend a particular operating system, such as FreeBSD or Debian, which is very well supported by GNUStep, and which will give me an environment as similar to Mac OS X as I can get?

Ubuntu and FreeBSD are the two tier 1 platforms for Étoilé. x86-32 is better supported than -64, but we are working on that for 0.4. Note that there are a number of Apple-specific technologies (core animation, quicktime, and so on) that won't be duplicated by any GNUstep-based environment.

Also, I would appreciate the name of a good IDE or text editor on that OS that maybe has particularly good integrating with GNUStep.

There are a couple of GNUstep IDEs, and also CodeEditor.app in Étoilé svn, but I still tend to use vim for editing source files.
