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.

What is so technically demanding in a stupid WM that just grew fat?

By the way, the reason this stupid WM grew so fat is just because it tries to run on so many platforms, and does that supplying only the largest common denominator of technologies. Something that provides what inotify does, obviously, not available on all platforms GNOME supports.
