I have installed all three GNUstep MSYS System, GNUstep Core, and GNUstep Devel. It just gives me the Linux-like shell

Your best bet is to compile within the msys shell, which is properly setup for you. hen getting a source tarball you should be able to just do "make install" and then run your application through "openapp AppName".

You can do that with ProjectCenter too, which is one of the available IDEs. I suggest to install Gorm too. Since these apps install inside the environment, even if you have a proper .exe on your hard disk, they won't install in your "start menu".

One more question, I also need to install Cygwin for running some other simulation software. Any idea that GNUstep provides the same environment as Cygwin? If not, any idea if GNUstep may conflict with Cygwin.

They should not conflict, however GNUstep currently doesn't work (well or at all, depending on whom do you ask) inside cygwin.
Thank you for your advice,
If your goal is to code and familiarize with Objective-C and you do not expressly need to produce windows executables, a quick and easy way would be to use the freshly annouced "One step to GNUstep" ready-setup Virtual Machine image. Just run Virtual Box or VMWare on your windows machine and in 5 minutes you are ready to write Hello World.
