… a raft of corporations today announced membership in the newly created Gnome Foundation that will control the interface. The companies include Sun Microsystems and Hewlett-Packard, both of which will gradually make Gnome the default interface for their versions of Unix. Also on board are TurboLinux, Red Hat, Compaq Computer, IBM, Eazel, Helix Code, VA Linux Systems, Henzai, Gnumatic and two nonprofit organizations–the Object Management Group and the Free Software Foundation.
Damm, it is like a who’s who of the computer world. I never thought that Sun and the Free Software Foundation would partner like this.
