    Spread GNOME

    Recently I decided to set out on building a non-profit site designed for spreading GNOME desktops throughout the world (and even GNU/Linux in general for that matter) -- similar to what has been done with SpreadFirefox.com. Anyways, the domain registered was http://www.spreadgnome.org/

    When I had initially started working on the site, David Nielsen had expressed interest in working on the site as well. A few others have also shown support for such a community site. However, the site has yet to turn into a reality. The content on the site currently is minimal (and is currently not even maintained), and the site itself is certainly in need of an entire overhaul. The site as you see it today was simply the result of a few hours of work.

    It would be ideal if we could get something up and running on SpreadGNOME.org by the launch of GNOME 2.16.0 -- September 6, 2006. If anyone would be interested in helping with this community site in anyway, please contact me or simply post a message with your thoughts or ideas. Thanks.

    Basically anything why you personally like/chose GNOME for your desktop environment, how you personally promote GNOME, success stories, or anything along those lines.

    If you have anything you would like to share, or more questions, feel free to send it to news [at] phoronix.com

    What kind of content are you looking for?

    Heard back from Miguel de Icaza today (one of the GNOME founders for the uninitiated), and so far from the Beta site demonstrated to him, and other provided information, he feels "This looks fantastic!".

    If anyone is interested in contributing any content for this free creative commons soon-to-be-launched site, feel free to message me.

    Looks like we will indeed make the time-frame of SpreadGNOME.org to launch with GNOME 2.16... We're just down to making content at this point and other odd ends.

    My friends, family and I use Gnome because it just works. No customizing, no messings with settings. The integration is very good as well. For istance, stardict, which I used to help expidite the learning of new languages works with all the programs I use with no hassle.

    SuSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10's Gnome Desktop is great looking and very easy to use. Instead of Beagle being a startup icon, its now integrated into the start menu. All applications are show(well not all still has some bugs) as well as control panel settings. You can group by type like settings and it will highlight them all into a group for easy finding. Also prefer how Gnome looks to other GUI's.

    Hey Michael... do you ever stop working? :-)

    I'm not a GNOME user, but I am going to play around with Kate OS this afternoon which uses it, so I will give it a shot again.

    Maybe you should write a small article on why you enjoy personally enjoy GNOME so much. Not like a GNOME > KDE article, but why specifically you love using GNOME on a day to day basis. Just an idea. Good luck with the site man.

    We are a few weeks away from a new (much needed) site layout for SpreadGNOME.org.

    SpreadGNOME.org is still targeted for a launch to coincide with GNOME 2.16.

    If anyone is interested in contributing content or helping out anyway, it would be much appreciated. Thanks.
