Sony to use GNUStep!
« on: November 25, 2010, 02:37:46 PM »
Sony have announced they are going to be using GNU Step for their future products... That could inject some vital development money/time into the project!

I'm wondering if Sony are hoping to cash in on the number of new Obj-C coders who have grown up around the Apple ecosystem? It seems like a slightly odd choice to me, but not a bad one!

Now, where is our Amiga GNUStep port? The Amiga seriously lacks an objective-c runtime for those who would use it :)

Didn't the Anubis guys port one?

In the Amiga community that counts as 900million... ;)

Actually, I've been so involved with microcontrollers recently I haven't touched an Obj-C in at least a month... I've probably forgotten everything by now...

Anubis didn't get much further then talking about porting something from somewhere... ;)

I was pretty keen on the project, but I think my ideas were at odds with most others... And now AROS is running on the 68k my attention has shifted, since it's a bit more interesting :)

Why not combine your love of both and try to port the GNU ObjC runtime to AROS?

I wouldn't know where to begin... The time required is also too much right now :(

I really dislike Objective C.  Much more than I disliked C++ after moving from C.  iPhone programming is still fun, though not as fun as it could be.

Well with objective-c you are basically just working in plan c anyway... You don't have to structure your projects using it... And it is hardly an imposition using obj-c syntax to access the cocoa API :p

Anyway, I found this on Aminet... Not sure what it actually doea though, looks like an Obj-C preprocessor... Not sure how it would handle the runtime :-?
