Hmm, O.K. - for some reason I was under the impression you were one
of the many moaning about the state of the apps rather than the core

I dont see how anyone can use it as a straight up user right now,
no - because there arent a full set of apps for anyone to be a straight
up users. What does a "straight up GNUstep user" do for a web browser
for example ? I strongly suspect theres no such thing - just a set of
people who mwould like there to be a full set of apps one day so they
can become straight-up users. When I will join them most likely. Until
then I dont believe theres any such thing as a straight-up user of
GNUstep, no. Only straight-up users of a few individual apps.

As to the way I see GNustep right now - I see it as a set of incomplete
libraries and a smattering of apps based on those. Is that a wrong way
to view the project ? Is it an incomplete way to view the current state
of the project ?
