That attachment I mentioned...

Sorry, I forgot to attach the file. It's there this time.

GNOME is free software, meaning that you have the freedom to distribute copies of it (and charge for this service if you wish), to have access to it's source code, and to change it or use pieces of it in a new free program(see the GNU General Public License).

GNOME is part of the GNU Project, which was founded in 1985 by Richard Stallman, in an effort to re-establish the co-operative spirit of progammers which dissapeared with the growth in proprietry software. The FSF's aim was to build a complete UNIX clone, and it has nearly reached this goal, as most of the GNU/Linux operating system(apart from the Linux Kernel)has been written by it, along with many programs that are widely used and have been ported to a number of platforms, such as the gcc compiler. GNU will be an Operating System in its own right in a year or two when the Hurd(a modular UNIX kernel) is finished. The FSF always needs more help so if you have some spare time please visit the GNU website and see what you can do.
