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.

RE[2]: What... the... f***?

Can't you read? This was just a suggestion by one of the developers. "They" haven't decided on anything or proposed this as an official suggestion or whatever.

Notice I said, even "...just the *idea*..."; even if in the end they don't do this, this is a disturbing thing to even consider. And even more disturbing that it's not just one person's idea. Yes, I know it's not official, but similar ideas spreading between multiple high-up people is not good.
