I did not really know where to post this, this felt like the best place. So I have recently gotten into learning about UNIX and using the terminal to do a lot of things on my computer, just really basic stuff, and I had a few questions. First off, what is gnome? Is it something one uses on OS X, or is it the desktop for linux distros? Basically, I am just starting to learn this stuff and I wanted to know what is possible here. Thanks for helping.
