Someone Pledged $1 Million to the GNOME Foundation Anonymously

An anonymous entity just pledged to donate $1 million to the GNOME foundation over the next two years. In case, you weren’t aware, GNOME Foundation is the non-profit organization behind the popular GNOME desktop environment and its associated suite of applications. The project was started in 1997 by two then-university students with the aim to produce a free desktop environment.
