1) Why care about *BSD as a desktop?
2) Why care about *BSD as a workstation? (Which I see as a next level in 
stability/usability beyond a toy "desktop")

In the specific case about Gnome - really if you care so much then you 
can submit patches and contribute.  If nobody is willing to do the work 
(scratch the itch) then ultimately it really doesn't matter.

Oh this is flamebait, but I hope gnome does do this..   Maybe then more 
people would forget about it and focus on making KDE better ;)
