Whoa whoa whoa... I never hear about Fedora or SuSE having these clashes 
with GNOME. Are you sure the problem is really with GNOME and not with 
us? Maybe this problem isn't "GNOME doesn't cooperate with 
distributions" but rather "Canonical doesn't cooperate with GNOME."

Just a thought. I would like to see better cooperation, personally ;-)

Also, last I heard, 'GNOME OS' is not intended to obsolete distros, it 
is intended to obsolete jhbuild as a way for developers to hack on the 
absolute-cutting-edge-git-snapshots of GNOME.
