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.

"and the BSD guys don't seem to be.

Seems that 'lack of resources' is not a popular term at Linux circles, well buddy, it unfortunately is at BSD ones.

Lets not compare apples to oranges here, put all that money that You have put into Linux instead into FreeBSD project and watch FreeBSD doing circles around Linux, but Linux has hype which help get that money.
Speaking of comparison. Did we already knew that Open Source development is about helping and volunteering? Donations are always welcome, but I do not believe the idea that because BSD devs lacks the money, they can't afford to _volunteer_ their precious time to make GNOME/KDE/whatever work better in their system. They keyword is to volunteer, not to wait for any donations.
