Gnome Something's - once again - brewing within the GNOME project. While a mere suggestion for now, and by no means any form of official policy, influential voices within the GNOME project are arguing that GNOME should become a full-fledged Linux-based operating system, and that the desktop environment should drop support for other operating systems such as Solaris and the BSDs. I have a feeling this isn't going to go down well with many of our readers.

You mean it's not Linux only already?

Snarkiness aside, they should do this. I really want to see where this goes. There are too many good opportunities for storylines and testing hypotheses here to ignore.

Is the Linux hubris justified, is Red Hat behind it, what could they actually do, how would everyone else respond?
