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.

hat is so technically demanding in a stupid WM that just grew fat?

While I largely do not disagree with your post and its sentiment we should strive to keep hyperbole to a minimum. GNOME didn't start as a WM; it didn't really have its own WM until Metacity came along quite late in the process.
