It is GNOME for OS/2. Exactly it's the port of GNOME to XFree86OS/2. GNOME is an whole environment for XFree, that means it comes along with a lot of LIBs and also with a lot of applications based on these LIBs. GNOME is based on the GTK engine and can be used with all Windowmanagers, but it prefer a Windowmanager that fulfills some special restrictions like the Enlightnemnet.

First of all I want to thank all people that port X programs to OS/2 with this page. Especially Platon Fomichev and Hung-Chi Chu for porting GNOME. And as a lot of ports are made in Asia or Russia I want to mirror the needed files here, so people from the US and much other countries have a faster access.
