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.

Being nice to everybody is nice, but this isn't about being nice.

If someone gives you something valuable and you give him 1000 bucks for it, then your brother comes and gives you something not as good, although he did his best in providing you with something good, you want to give him 1000 bucks too, which would be nice, but what if you don't have that money?

And, most importantly, you can help your brother make something better himself, helping him win his own money instead of doing it for him yourself.
