Hi everyone,

This is serious and this is not fun at all. Kindly read:




This thread to spread the word of this cause. What happened with GNOME could happen to any FLOSS Project and we should NOT remain silent at all. It is time to show our appreciation to the projects that have changed our lives. It is time to donate our time (and money if we could) for these projects. If you don't like GNOME, you surely do like FLOSS World, otherwise you won't be here reading this.

Thank you!




GNOME says it is facing a deadline of December 3 to oppose ten of Groupon's 28 trademark applications. But it needs donations to fight the legal battle. “Our counsel has advised us that we will need $80,000 to oppose the registration of the first set of 10 applications,” GNOME said. “If we are able to defend the mark without spending this amount, we will use the remaining funds to bolster and improve GNOME.”

Groupon backs down from GNOME over trademark, will change product name


If you can Please donate a few bucks to help defend Gnome
