Today, we will conduct a Part «(GNOMEApps1) » of a series of 3 articles on "GNOME Community Apps". In order to do so, start exploring the wide and growing catalog of free and open applications developed by them, on their new website Applications for GNOME.
In such a way, to promote knowledge about them to all users in general of GNU / Linux, especially those who may not be using "GNOME» as «Desktop Environment» main or sole.
For those interested in exploring our previous related posts with the Applications developed and endorsed by the GNOME Community, you can click the following link on the GNOME CIRCLE project, after finishing reading this publication.
"A project that seeks to improve the development and growth of applications and libraries to expand the GNOME Desktop Environment ecosystem. Hence, GNOME CIRCLE stands for good software developed and available for the GNOME platform. Not only the best applications and libraries for GNOME, but it also seeks to support independent developers using GNOME technologies." GNOME CIRCLE: Applications and Libraries Project for GNOME
