I love WindowMaker but I think it is misleading to call it a GNUStep app. Both WindowMaker and GNUStep were inspired by NeXT and as such WindowMaker seems like an obvious WM for a GNUStep setup but the projects do not share a common technical heritage. WindowMaker does not use the GNUStep libraries, is not an OpenStep app, and is not coded in Objective-C. This means that it has little to do with OS X or Cocoa although I am sure it has been ported. I think that WindowMaker is coded in C++ although I should really do some homework before saying so.
