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.

See, that's the thing about open source... all this 'free love' and 'free choice' shit is all fine and good, but then somebody actually has to sit down and do the work.

Amen to that. It doesn't mean developers should ignore the opinions of non-developers - but ultimately, they're the ones doing the work.
