Personal Review


Many year ago, in my first Linux I installed several desktop to chose from. GNOME did work. Software installations in GNOME got the menus and icons right at that time, and the others desktops did not. I am GNOME user ever since. I kept GNOME because it s simplicity. I need to work, I like a clean environment that enable me to do it.

I use GNOME since it's early days and I can say I'm very happy about it. GNOME has provided me a clean and productive Desktop Environment for my needs and a wide group of applications to make my life easier and enjoy a more thrilling experience with Linux. The GNOME Community should be proud on it's achievements as it is one of the most brilliant pieces of Free Open Source Software Engineering.
Nelson Marques, Fedora Marketing Team

A ideal environment is one which stays out of the way and lets me get the work done. GNOME strives to do just that and has made remarkable strikes towards putting the user first instead of technology for the sake of technology. The best thing I can say about GNOME is that I never have to think about it anymore.
