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.

I'm not sure, but the README files should say something about this.

I think the compiler will conflict. You could probably be best off
compiling GNUstep under Cygwin, I'm pretty sure that will work, as long
as their GCC supports Objective-C. (You can test by writing a piece of
pure C code, but compiling it with "gcc -x objective-c inputfilehere -o

According to reports on this mailing list, GNUstep currently wont work on Cygwin. There never was a clear report what is failing and the last time I tried it worked (which was about ten years ago :-). But compiling GNUstep on Cygwin is definitely not something I would suggest to a newby.

Perhaps all the people interested in GNUstep on Cygwin could get together and make this usable again? It shouldn't be to hard :-) I expect that most of the needed changes are in GNUstep-make and some of the configuration scripts. And of course you will have to find correctly compiled versions of all the required libraries.
