SpreadGNOME.org launches
Aug. 23, 2006

A new, interactive website with the self-explanatory URL, SpreadGNOME.org, launched Aug. 23. As one might imagine, the site was established in an effort to promote the adoption of the GNOME desktop and GNOME-related applications.

"SpreadGNOME.org is meant as a place to share ideas to help promote GNOME in the community, and helping those who wish to get involved with GNOME," the team said in the launch announcement. "[People should] feel free to submit other GNOME-related content as well to this site."

SpreadGNOME.org is an independent website and is not affiliated with, authorized by, sponsored by, or otherwise approved by GNOME Foundation, the team noted.

The all-things-GNOME site includes a list of links to other GNOME-oriented sites, including GNOME Journal and the latest GNOME releases; a list of other GNOME-affiliated links; and a listing of upcoming GNOME events.

GNOME (GNU Network Object Model Environment), a project begun in August 1997 by Miguel de Icaza and Fredrico Mena, is one of the two most popular desktop environments for Linux. It also runs on most Unix and Unix-like systems, and there are ports of GNOME applications for Microsoft Windows through Cygwin.

In other GNOME-related news, the GNOME Project on Aug. 23 made available for download the second release candidate of its v2.16.0 (v2.15.92). The latest stable release is v2.14.3.
