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.

To paraphrase: Why should proprietary vendors be held back by the shortcomings of Linux?


They don't have to. Just make them open source (as GNOME is) and Linux developers will happily take care of the rest from there, thank you very much.
