Gnome is the system of choice for Endless Mobile who plans to put it in more than 5 billion smartphones found in developing world countries, transforming it in a personal computer by greatly unlocking the abilities of the devices.
According to the well-known Gnome developer Cosimo Cecchi who left Red Hat since April and joined Endless Mobile, this new operating system is going to be based on Gnome so it is not yet very clear whether this new system will look anything like Gnome Shell. The context shows that GTK+ will of course be the toolkit used for the main parts of the system.
Although the team is not yet complete (apply for a position), it already consists of many interesting persons like Gnome’s board of directors member Emmanuele Bassi. Emmanuele has already been involved with Gnome to embedded devices projects in Intel and Nokia, so his contribution to the whole project is expected to be vital.
No more information about the project and technical details about the operating system itself are yet available, but we hope that soon we’ll know more about this exciting project that aims to bring Gnome in the hands of millions.
