The GNOME Project was started as a free (as in freedom) desktop environment and 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. The desktop has been utilized in successful, large-scale enterprise, and public deployments and the project’s developer technologies are utilized in a large number of popular mobile devices. The GNOME Project is supported by the GNOME Foundation, a member directed non-profit organization.
