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.

To not make their applications open source or not is their decision, to support or not support Linux is their decision.
Maybe it's just me but I have no issue with not all software in the world being open source.

But you certainly have an issue with Gnome choosing to focus solely on Linux...
