Not everyone can afford a Mac, or even want a Mac. I can't afford one, but I 
was graciously given one. I'm happy with it, and in case it stops working for 
any reason, I would like to use other platforms as well. And I want to spread 
the Objective-C love around.

I love software freedom. I'm not zealous about it, but I love it. It is however 
not the primary reason for my use of GNUstep. I'm around GNUstep because I 
think my code should run on more platforms.
