Matthias Warkus has written a brief overview of GNOME at LinuxTag 2001 noting that GNOME's profile is much higher than it was a year ago:

"Two weeks ago, on the last weekend in June, LinuxTag 2001 -Europe's largest Linux exposition- took place in Stuttgart, Germany. Again, GNOME was present (together in a booth with the GIMP), and we drew an even larger crowd than last year.

Just as last summer, GNOME was present with a booth at LinuxTag in Stuttgart. We hada great, if a little exhausting time there.

The difference between 2000 and 2001 was striking right from thestart. Last year, many of the people coming to the booth didn't evenknow how to pronounce GNOME; and we hadn't got much to demonstrate tothem -- in comparison, that is. In 2000, what we showed the public atour tiny, tiny booth was: the panel with its cool applets; GMC; games,gtop and other niceties; very preliminary versions of Gnumeric andNautilus; etc. We hadn't really got a newsreader, a Web browser, amail client, a word processor, a really cool file manager and so on --in 2001, it was all there. There was more to demo than we had timefor. Most demos and most questions were, as expected, about Nautilus,which attracted spectators like a magnet; but Gnumeric and especiallyGaleon found a lot of attention as well."
