101 things about GNOME

GNOME, born August 1997, was the brainchild of 2 Mexicans, Miguel de Icaza, and Federico Mena Quintero – and creating a free desktop alternative based on the GPL.

GNOME stands for 'GNU Network Object Model Environment', based on the component based architecture that was planned for the project.
GNOME is pronounced 'GUH-NOM', best done in a squeaky Mexican accent.
