Reading back on this I think I probably need to explain myself a
bit. I understood the question to be whether GNOME should be
marketed more as a development platform for 3rd party ISVs, or
whether it should be marketed as a complete, free desktop
environment. And of those two, I think that it's more important
to emphasise the complete free desktop environment bit than to
say "look, ISVs, you can make money out of porting your apps to
GNOME or wrapping it in your own Special Juice".
