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.

All nice and dandy... but I fail to see you point:

Having a comparable or even better technical solution is -irrelevant- unless someone from the BSD camp stands up and implements the required support with GNOME (or any other DE for that matter).

This is FOSS 101 - not rocket science: Unless you're willing to scratch your own itch, no-one will be doing it for you...
