The Value of the GNOME Project
GNOME is a freely available operating system for desktops, laptops and netbooks. It is highly influential in the Linux community due to the project community’s unique commitment to the user experience.
Used by millions of people around the world, it is the most popular environment for the Free and Open Source operating systems. GNOME’s software has been utilized in successful, large-scale enterprise and public deployments.
GNOME’s close alignment with human-computer interaction drives technical requirements in areas such as interface design, toolkits, graphics and display rendering. These innovations have been picked up by other Linux operating system projects such as Ubuntu and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (Fedora), Chrome, MeeGo, and Tizen distributions (including Tizen IVI).
Who It’s For
It is used directly by consumers, and its open source code is utilized by operating system vendors, system integrators, original device and equipment manufactures and others who are building custom Linux desktop and distributions. Application developers also use GNOME for development and test activities. GNOME boasts a substantial commitment to accessibility, internationalization and localization.
GNOME is written primarily in the C language, distributed under the LGPL v2.1 license, with more than five thousand contributors including writers, designers, translators and programmers. GNOME libraries can also utilized by most major languages available today
About Intel Involvement
