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.

But you can't do that with proprietary and closed source software. All you can do is urging the developer to release a version for your favourite platform.


That's not the point. To paraphrase: Why should proprietary vendors be held back by the shortcomings of Linux?
Same argument. Open or closed source is immaterial.
Like someone said: the people who write the code gets to decide.
