Just a quick starter, I don't have much time, so...

10 the magic number
Today the OpenStep API celebrates it's 10th anniversary. What started out as a joint adventure of NeXT and SUN to define an application development standard that would run on all machines, making a write once compile everywhere paradigma a reality, is still a vivid and active community of GNUstep, old NeXT and Apple lovers.

The magic 10 appears in Apple's OS X and in GNUsteps current 1.10.x release numbers. Currently people are able to develop their programs on Mac OS, Linux, the BSDs, Solaris, and with a couple of hurdles even on Windows. Slowly but steadily a solid and well defined standard is reaching out to the world of software development.

Program your applications in a couple of hours instead of days, weeks or never. Use the advanced API of a development framework that didn't need any modification for 10 years, because it rocks, is stable and just works.

That's very nice !

I only have few remarks -- first, it should perhaps be better to host the brochure & booklet on . but well, that's not that important. Second, I'm not sure about the "magic 10 number" thing and the "program your applications in a couple of hours". What do other people think about it ? Other thing, it's perhaps better to remove the "old" in the 2nd sentence... and perhaps throw in the text the notion that GNUstep is a free software effort.. :)
But all in all I like it :-)
