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.

I never said that OSX lacked udev (or as someone else wrote in this thread: inotify). I just said that instead of writing code for GNOME (KDE, E17, ...) considering that udev may or may not be available, we should all focus on the systems we use, and it's clear the majority is Linux. If there are non-Linux developers, fine, they can "waste" their time reworking the internals to make both work.

To be clear, and using your example: Why MacOSX would care about GNOME? Why GNOME would care about MacOSX?
