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.

The Gnome development team has the right to support - or not support - any OS that they choose. As a long time KDE user (and FreeBSD user) I could care less.

I think this gives KDE a wonderful opportunity to expose many more people to it's merits that might otherwise not have been if Gnome was the default window manager.
