GNOME --
There are at least two exciting Linux/open-source birthdays to celebrate this week.

Yesterday marked 19 years since the GNOME desktop environment was founded by Miguel de Icaza and Federico Mena.

Today now marks 23 years since the Debian project was started by the late Ian Murdock.

More details on the festivities around Debian's birthday via bits.debian.org with their announcement this morning.
