You mean in Gnome or in general? If you mean in general I think it's
because of Microsoft's dominance and what gets taught in school. 

I don't GUI program but I've been reading some old NeXT Obj-C manuals and
I'm getting very eager to try some coding in Obj-C. I must admit I looked
at C++ a long time ago and didn't feel the same enthusiasm (and thus have
never learned it) - maybe I wasn't "ready".

My question is: which Gnome-App is coded in Obj-C - I know one of them is. 
I'd like something relatively small to look at for now (before I get in
over my head and start fooling around with GNUStep or something :-P)
