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.

Sounds like BSD people prefers to "satisfice" instead of optimise seeing negative rate of returns. (bad way of putting it but thats the idea).

Both communities do their jobs fine anyways. I'd rather run BSD-based NAS/routers, since there aren't much technological advancements in the sector, and Linux-based thin-clients and application servers due to the rapid updates. Best of breeds, I guess.
