"MandrakeSoft today announced that it is joining the Advisory Board of the GNOME Foundation, which aims to promote the GNOME graphical desktop. Linux-Mandrake operating system has included GNOME since early versions and the GNOME has recently become the desktop of choice for many Linux-Mandrake users."

"We are delighted that MandrakeSoft is joining the Foundation's Advisory Board and extending its commitment to GNOME," said Miguel De Icaza, co-founder of GNOME. "MandrakeSoft's market leadership role in the European Linux market and its strong retail presence in the US will allow GNOME to reach a much broader audience worldwide."

"MandrakeSoft affirms its commitment to the Foundation and to GNOME's bright future by also announcing to financially sponsor several GNOME developers so that they may focus on developing GNOME Office/OpenOffice for the benefit of the entire community."
