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.

Was, Sun was. Past tense. Sun is now Oracle and Oracle hates FOSS.

And anyways HPUX, AIX and Solaris are going ship Gnome 2.28 + patches forever (until they die). They will not run Gnome-Shell. Never ever.
