Here is a corrected version, that creates better English :)
Would be nice to work more on this. A bit about ProjectCenter to make it
Thanks, for the great work.
I put all the text below.
Actually I hope each section could be longer, has more description.
I also add more title of sections.
If anyone can add more text on the section you want,
it will be very helpful. Or even add some more sections.
There must be something that GNUstep is better than others.
== Why You Should Use GNUstep ==
GNUstep provides an Object-Oriented application development framework and
tool set for use on a wide variety of computer platforms. GNUstep is based
on the original OpenStep specification provided by NeXT, Inc. (now Apple).
== Objective-C ==
GNUstep uses the Objective-C language, which gives you the full power of
a true object-oriented language with exactly one syntax addition to C
and just a few additional keywords. Objective-C is dynamic and
offers many features such as categories.
== Cross-platform Developement ==
GNUstep supports various platforms, including FreeBSD and Linux.
It is also very easy to port GNUstep developed programs
to the Cocoa environment of MacOS X because they share the same root of
the OpenStep specification.
== Framework for Everyone ==
GNUstep provides the complete framework for every kind of application.
The GNUstep framework is based on the OpenStep specification,
which is used in commercial software several years as a proof of stability
Commonly used GUI components such as a font panel and
a color picker are also provide. Beyound OpenStep, GNUstep also supports
many up-to-date standards such as SSL, XML and Unicode.
== LGPL ==
LGPL lets you freely use GNUstep in your software.
== Rapid Graphic Application Developement ==
Gorm lets you design your user interface simply by drag and drop.
Through the connection of outlets and actions, you can hook the source code
the user interface on the fly.
Through the localization mechanism, you can even build custom interfaces for
== Service ==
Service allows applications to exchange and transform data inbetween.
By offering service, your application is turned into the plug-in for other
In other word, several small applications can be connected as a virtual
application for your need.
== Script ==
(Put StepTalk here)
== Distributed Object (and archive ?) ==
== MVC == (?)
== Plenty of applications ==
(put ProjectCenter, GNUMail and GWorkspace here)
