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.

BSD and Solaris people should realize that they already got very much due to popularity of Linux (kernel and all the surrounding sw), so nobody "owes" them anything.


Uh, exactly what are the BSD's and Solaris owing the Linux kernel in terms of popularity?
