About Gnome - Groupon Tablet Solution

Hai,

I got GNOME Announcement  page recently on the web. 

I shocked because you people saying Groupon is fueled by open source software.
So I Think that you heard of other gnome
I also think that before naming a product the research team goggled about what gnome is.

So this is a worst attempt from Groupon to steal the name from a community, Open Source Project, FLOSS trademark .

If you have any respect to the software/codes you using from Opensource Software like Groupon’s new OSS homeGithub. etc then just change the name.

I never expecting such a worst unprofessional move from a professional well reputed company like Groupon.

:(

Regards,

Ranjith Siji

$B donations not working

From: https://www.gnome.org/friends/other-ways-to-donate/

> Bitcoin
> We have currently reached our daily limit for receiving Bitcoin.
> Please try again tomorrow :-(

This isn't very cool... Please just post a wallet address, and get the
currency converted at a later date! If that's not possible for some
reason, then I suspect someone should look into fixing the Bitcoin
processor we're using.

Cheers,
James

GNOME starts campaign to protect its trademarks

GNOME has launched a campaign¹ to raise funds for protecting the GNOME trademarks.

Recently, Groupon launched Gnome², a tablet-based point of sale (POS) system that 
Groupon describes as a “platform” and an “operating system”.

The GNOME Foundation is concerned and sees their long-established mark for Free 
Software, GNOME, endangered. The GNOME Foundation asks for ideological and 
monetary support to cover the costs of opposing the marks Groupon applied to 
register, which were estimated to be around 80,000 USD.

“I cannot believe Groupon was not aware of GNOME, the Free Software desktop 
environment and application suite, when it chose the name. Especially as they 
claim to be ‘fueled by open source‘³,” said Tobias Mueller, one of the directors 
of the GNOME Foundation.

“We will not give up and fight their use of our name which we have established 
over the last 17 years to provide users all over the world with high quality 
Free Software solutions.”

“Millions of people who use GNU/Linux based systems use GNOME or GNOME-related 
technologies, such as GLib or GTK+. We must not let a billion-dollar-company 
take the well-established name of one of the biggest Free Software communities,” 
Tobias added. “If you want to help GNOME defend its trademark and promote Free 
Software, visit the campaign’s page¹, share the link, and let Groupon know that 
they behaved terribly”.

GNOME also made a press contact⁴ available for further questions or interviews.

#DefendGNOME

Hi everyone,

Just read this:
https://gnome.org/groupon/

For those who can't donate money, please make sure to donate some of your 'free' time for GNOME and use:

#DefendGNOME

As a hashtag on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, etc.

It is time for GNOME Members to help whether with money or time.

We shall win this cause, no doubt about that :)
I don't have enough free time as I used to months ago but I will never be late to help. This is not something that we should sit back and watch it. This is something we must all help with. All of us are smarter, stronger and better than anyone of us.

Long Live GNOME!

Regarding a graduate student interested in researching the GNOME Foundation (resubmitted without contact information)

Note: I sent this message out yesterday but was advised to remove my phone number and other contact information and resubmit. My apologies.

To whom this may concern,

My name is Emma Stamm. I am an MS candidate in nonprofit management at The New School in New York City. For my master's thesis, I am required to investigate the business structure of a nonprofit organization, and I am considering the GNOME Foundation as my organization of choice. For this reason, I am curious to know if it would be possible for me to speak with representatives from GNOME.

I am very interested in F/OSS development, the free/libre software movement and leveraging open source technology for social change. My career goal is to work in a managerial capacity for an organization similar to GNOME in terms of goals and guiding principles. The aim of my research is to determine best practices in managing such an enterprise. This is particularly in light of the fact that, as a developing field, management of F/OSS-focused nonprofits has not yet received wide scholarly attention.

Although I have something of a background in coding and web development, my research and career focus is on management and business strategies in the realms of fundraising, internal and external communications and human resources. To that end, I am looking for individuals who can speak to that as opposed to more tech-focused representatives of the foundation.

I am a user of GNOME products and a great admirer of what you do. Any information you can share with me will be greatly appreciated. 

best,
Emma
