GnuStep on Linux works well, even though the compilation and installation can be a little bit challenging. I spent part of December doing just that. The GUI support isn’t so good (I’d avoid that), but Blocks, Dispatch and ARC and @properties all work well together, and Foundation works fine. (or at least the bits of it I’ve used).
