comment Who uses GnuSTEP?
@GrahamLee It matters when you're selecting a framework for developing indie applications. Your last comment sounds like it answers why indies choose to go with Cocotron instead.

comment Do GUI programmers have an undue advantage over others?
As one developer put it, GUI programmers write device drivers for people. The challenge is, there isn't an exact I/O ports specification for people and the variability of responses may be vastly different among the differing units – people are more fickle unlike USB mass storage devices. Thus back to the original analogy, it's a lot more difficult to write drivers to interface with moist robots.

comment Who uses GnuSTEP?
From GnuSTEP's list of developers/users, I couldn't find any application that individuals can buy at an affordable price (say, < $1000 per license). Also it sounds like that list of clientele is mostly "legacy" users of the NextSTEP days (having legacy code when NextSTEP was popular in corporates).
