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.

Apples and oranges. As the other commenters said, everybody is free to port GNOME to their favourite OS. When Photoshop/AutoCAD/whatever become open source (even if only officially supported on Windows/OSX), and Linux people keep whining because Adobe/Autodesk don't do the dirty work of porting these apps for them, then we talk.

Edit: corrected a few typos.
