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.

They probably should stop supporting Solaris just to thrown Oracle under the bus. To be quite honest, I wouldn't be surprised if that was part of the strategy.

Not that I see Solaris being anything more then a headless appliance OS going forward.
