I've been toying with NextSpace in a VM. From my experience, if this gains a web browser and network settings panel (mostly for Wifi config), (and gets Debian packages) it could easily replace Mate on my machines. Linux desktop application development is terrible at the moment.


GNUstep may not be the right answer for me, but I'm open to at least exploring it. NSMacintoshMenuStyle works in NextSpace, and I had Rik.theme built/working properly.

That’s promising to hear. I’m very interested in trying this out on Debian/Ubuntu!

I was hoping to get Etoile WildMenus running as well but ran out of time.

Would be very interesting.

NextSpace is definitely moving in the right direction. I think the focus on System settings is definitely the way to go. As someone who would like to get a mac-like desktop out of this eventually I'd like to see some of the options ported into SystemPreferences.app just because it's a more mac-like application.

Full ack.

But I like how NextSpace has the look/feel of NextStep, definitely keep it up. I know the ideal would be to port webkit to gnustep but at this point I'd be happy to just throw firefox into a gnustep window with an application menu.


So I’m very much supporting Sergii in his approach. If his developments are going to be compatible with GNUstep upstream, I’d love to have/get this packaged and installable for my distribution of choice (Debian/Ubuntu) to recommend it to regular users.
