This is very nice.. I have only one comment:
  • Aaron Hillegass/Adam Preble: Cocoa Programming for Mac OS X. 4th ed. Addison-Wesly, 2012.
He gets the project COMPLETELY wrong in this book.  His misconception about us needing the "absolute latest" of gcc and other assumptions he made without really checking with us are damaging.

just to let you know. I used the time after Christmas to prepare a
little showcase on how to develop GNUstep apps when coming from
macOS/Cocoa (these apps using AppKit) and how to integrate these into a
popular desktop environment (because I think that’s what new devs
would be interested in):


It was a nice experience to put together some bits and pieces I learned
and explored the last year.

Hope you enjoy as well
