I've tested parts of KDE and it looks a lot better than any Motif product
I've ever seen.  (this from someone who has been a huge fan of the Motif
interface for a long time)  It's a lot better looking than say.. the CDE.

I expect a 1.0 release of GNUstep to take about the same amount of time to
appear as the Hurd takes to reach 1.0.

I really don't think people are looking for a whole new language and such.
A consistent user interface is what they're really interesteed in. :)
