The GNOME Project is a community that makes great software. All our work is free to use, modify and redistribute. Started in 1997 by two then university students, Miguel de Icaza and Federico Mena. Their aim: to produce a free (as in freedom) desktop environment. Since then, GNOME has grown into a hugely successful enterprise. Used by millions of people across the world, it is the most popular desktop environment for GNU/Linux and UNIX-type operating systems. Over 3500 people have contributed changes to the project’s code repositories, including the employees of 106 companies :)
