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.

Was, Sun was. Past tense. Sun is now Oracle and Oracle hates FOSS.

And anyways HPUX, AIX and Solaris are going ship Gnome 2.28 + patches forever (until they die). They will not run Gnome-Shell. Never ever.

Oracle loves FOSS ... they call it unbreakable and resell it.

You should remove btrfs from your system and vow never to use it instead of spreading FUD.

But that's a Red Hat fork, not Solaris

No, Oracle loves FOSS as long as it benefits them.
