it might be wise to mention here that Apple make most of their money
from hardware sales. Which is a very handy explanation of why Apple
"killed" YellowBox. If GNUstep succeeds, developers will be able to
develop as quickly on Intel computers as they can with Cocoa right now.
Which *might* mean lower hardware sales for Apple. I'm no analyst, but
I'd suggest you folks be careful, because if Apple see you as a threat
to their hardware sales they probably won't make it easier for you to
implement compatible APIs on other platforms...

Except if you are in the Finder, of course ;-)
(sorry, Mac-user inside-joke -- if you've read John Siracusa's articles
on the Finder at ArsTechnica, you may know what I'm talking about)
