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.

Or other OS'es should adopt Linux features in their kernel and distributions. That would benefit a lot of other projects as well

This is either the most asinine comment I've seen posted in a while, or it's brilliantly dry humor.

I'm going to go with humor and continue.

They could also use the Linux kernel, the GNU userland, apt, and the Debian repos. It's brilliant! They wouldn't have to code anything.
