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.

daemon called DEVD bla bla bla

What about GEM/TTM and KMS? What about UFS being the shittiest file system in use right now (if we don't consider fat16, ofc). ?

Linux guys created HAL and Udev and various init systems because they have the manpower and they can. After all, that is Linux about: reinventing the wheel.

BSD guys doesn't have the resources to reinvent the wheel and have thousands of software and libraries that to basically the same thing so they have to stick with only one software per task. That makes them a bit jelous. ;)
