Gnome is an official part of the GNU Project. Even if it runs on top of
other operating systems, it is primarily meant to be a free desktop
environment as a completion to the GNU system (whether running on top of
Hurd or on Linux).
While I don't consider other free systems as a problem (FreeBSD, ...) I
think it is important to talk about the whole GNU system and GNU project
as much as possible because freedom can only be perceived by users if we
talk to them about it. And the less familiar the users are with the
issues of freedom, the most we need to be clear and complete while
informing them.

So in my opinion, there is no such a place than the GNOME Project to
talk to end-users about the freedom provided by the GNU system.
