CMP Net: Gnome Linux Takes On Windows Goliath

“Linux has a new face and it looks like a Gnome.”

“Gnome is a new GUI that sits on top of Linux. This is part of a
broad strategy to popularize Linux among a wider range of users.
Most Linux users currently interact with the free OS by using a
traditional Unix command line interface.”

“Version 1.0 of Gnome was released by the Free Software
Foundation at the LinuxWorld Conference & Expo here on
Wednesday.”

“Gnome will be included in the next Linux release by Red Hat,
the leading vendor of prepackaged Linux systems. Gnome will also be
included in the next release of LinuxPPC, a version of the Linux OS
for the PowerPC, the hardware platform used by Macintosh computers.
LinuxPPC president Jeff Carr said his company has to deal with Mac
users, who have high standards for ease of use.”
