GNOME (pronounced /ˈnoʊm/ or /ɡəˈnoʊm/) is a desktop environment and graphical user interface that runs on top of a computer operating system. It is mainly developed by Red Hat employees. It is composed entirely of free and open source software. It is an international project that includes creating software development frameworks, selecting application software for the desktop, and working on the programs that manage application launching, file handling, and window and task management. GNOME is part of the GNU Project and can be used with various Unix-like operating systems, most notably GNU/Linux and as part of OpenSolaris Desktop.
