Doesn't seem to be much talk about it yet. Looks like a launch of an OS for Gnome 4.0 only.

I do not have a link to the article I read, but from what I gather, two members of Gnome's development team gave a presentation about the subject at a Linux-related conference in Europe. Their "plan" is for Gnome 4 to be released as an operating system and have 1/5th of the market by 2020. I doubt the rest of the people at Gnome are as distanced from reality as those two are.

In other words, do not get too excited about it.

I read somewhere that the operating system is not intended to be a distro for end-users, just a convenient testbed for developing gnome and its applications in a known and controllable environment.
