GNOME announced that it will launch an operating system in 2014
The gnome project, creator of the desktop environment of the same name, said it would launch its own operating system called OS GNOME will be available in 2014. The system “has the primary intention of serving as a platform for testing and development,” wrote the developer of the GNOME user experience, Allan Day.
Thus, it is not a new distribution to end users. “The idea of GNOME OS has been around for some years and has been a fair amount of confusion about what it means. Some people seem to assume that GNOME OS is an effort to replace Distributions, so let me be clear: this is not the case, “Day said in the official blog .
Instead, the idea is to “deliver a better experience for developers apliaciones, automated testing, sandbox applications, and compatibility with hardware.” The plan aims to improve the GNOME desktop, which can be used in other distros.
It is expected that the operating system is completed in March 2014.
