Hi Dan,

not sure what to tell you. Running GNUstep in a VM is fine, I do that
for GNUstep on Windows and somewhere I also have an old virtual Ubuntu...

Etoile surely has a more modern look than GNUstep itself, but you can
change GNUstep's look easily via themes. Best you start of with just
GNUstep and then decide whether you want to add anything on top of that.

Start off with the packages and then move on to GNUstep from SVN and
report back any problems you encounter.
