does that matter? seriously? if thats important for me i would not be
using open source at all.
So as an open source developer, you don't care about recognition, or wide usability of your software...? And who said that I would be only developing open source? Why not developing commercial software, and help develop gnustep at the same time, because I need some specific functionality. And some open- source for the fun of it.
what is it exactly that you like about nextstep? the language? i dont
really understand what you are trying to do.
I want to use it's api. Like nextstep an cocoa, it develops programs in a *beautiful* *fast* *simple* and *gratifying* way. More gratifying than programs written in any other framework.

you are a windows programmer right? you would have to do that yourself
or you could pay someone else to do that for you. but i doubt if a
microsoft certified programmer would like to work with gnustep.
Well I have a Microsoft background. And I am sufficiently fed up with it.. So I was looking to writing osx, but writing for osx means having such a limited audience. They are so *protective*, which is really discouraging. I am fully prepared to make a total new start. So I stared looking into gnustep. Like I already said, I could not get it right. So now I am stuck with writing for osx.

nextstep is all about the vertical menus and left hand vertical scroll
bar. its a complete ui design and it does not fit in windows. make it
behave like windows and you just reinvented windows.
I am sorry that I want to produce something practical...
(I am using linux by the way, as a firewall. I hope I did not offend you personally.)
