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.

Obviously, you haven't spotted enough of my previous comments: it turns out that I go against the most common trends here on OSnews. In particular, I don't drink the FOSS kool-aid. And I do think that software patents aren't the viruses some have come to believe.

So I guess my comment wasn't sarcastic enough to not appear as just "bitching".

And no, although I have an admiration for the BSD teams, it only stems from the release notes, the documentation and the looks of their source code. I've fiddled with the FreeBSD and PC-BSD, as well as each and every Ubuntu release. But I'm a Windows user 100% of the time. So no, I'm not the BSD fanboy you wish I were.

That's what the <sarcasm></sarcasm> tags are for. They should make that a part of the HTML standard ;)
