>From what I have heard on address@hidden, most Cocoa developers 
are more concerned to get their apps running on any Windows than on Linux 
(because of Linux's market share, the unwillingness of Linux users to pay 
for their apps and so on). Their common approach to this problem is 
currently to pester Apple to release Yellow Box for Windows...

Since the word is that GNUstep doesn't do it on Windows, they don't give a 
dime on GNUstep. At least that's what you'll usually get as an answer if 
you point people to GNUstep.

So I think that if GNUstep would run maturely on Windows and the 
installation there would be a no brainer, some Cocoa developers would 
come. Whatever that implies...
