Thank God! I hope this happens. If for no other reason than to end all the whining and bickering between the two camps. Too many in the community forget that we are all exercising our own freedom to choose. The developers should be allowed to do the same.

I agree. Infighting is part of the reason why Linux is not moving forward as fast as it should. When ppl look at all the different flavours it confuses them. One flavour per platform with everyone working towards making each flavour work would be great. But alas everyone is not one the same page even though we all want the same goal which is to provide a stable useable alternative to Windows and OSX.
