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.

Another thing about the GNOME community is the way they can't friggin wait to get MS tech into Linux and thereby fall into the trap that is being set by MS. I'm of course referring to Mono and C#. Again, if you friggin want windows you know where to go!

Bullshit. There are a few people in the community who have an interest in Mono/C#, but a) they're a small minority who don't represent anyone but themselves, b) even that minority has long given up on getting the majority to adopt Mono, and c) there's not single line of C# code anywhere in core Gnome.
