"The GNOME Foundation, a new association of open community developers and leading high-technology companies, will have a significant impact on the local IT industry where skills are scarce...."
"The development of a modern user environment, based on open industry standards which will run on virtually all UNIX operating systems as well as hardware platforms, will work well within the South African IT industry," says Schlee."
"This translates directly into easier administration and increased productivity and efficiency. Like driving a car, once you're familiar with GNOME on one system, you'll know how to use any other GNOME-powered device," continues Schlee."
