comment Why don't any of the gas giants have moons of Earth's mass (or greater) that orbit them? Is this generalizable to exoplanet gas giants?
"I don't think your first paragraph around ice and rock has anything to do with the question on whether gas giants should have Earth-sized moons." I'm thinking that ice and rock accrete differently though. So they would affect whether or not they have Earth-sized moons at distances less than the "ice belt", or where ice would vaporize and not be available. If they didn't vaporize, Earth could even be much larger than it is now (with much more ice)

I'd still like some clarification though. Especially since everyone else still seems to believe in the opposite
