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.

What about GEM/TTM and KMS? What about UFS being the shittiest file system in use right now (if we don't consider fat16, ofc). ?

GEM is being ported to the BSDs and before that KGI was ported. Hmm UFS ... do you really know what you are talking about? Ext2/3/4 are just hacks inspired on it and softupdates are REALLY cool!

Linux guys created HAL and Udev and various init systems because they have the manpower and they can.

I've used Hal on BSD ... is someone really proud of that? Udev is based on BSD's devfs and the init stuff is also based on stuff that has been available on the BSDs. No innovation there.

After all, that is Linux about: reinventing the wheel.

I'll take your word for that, but making the wheel squared won't help you climb stairs.
