GNOME announces a brand-new OS coming in 2014

Katherine Noyes | Aug. 10, 2012
There's been plenty of excitement surrounding Firefox OS ever since Mozilla announced its first hardware partners earlier this year, but now it looks like there's yet another open source operating system entering the scene.

Still, it feels a bit ironic to be hearing about these forward-looking plans at a time when interest in the old GNOME 2 appears to be reaching new heights.

Just in the past few weeks we've seen a key update to the GNOME 2-emulating MATE desktop, for instance, as well as the emergence of SolusOS with its own, like-minded iteration called GNOME Classic.

Like Ubuntu's Unity, GNOME 3 has been highly controversial, and just recently GNOME developer Benjamin Otte publicly lamented the current state of the project. It's going to be interesting to see if this new initiative can make a significant difference.
