Gnome The GNOME Foundation announced today the GNOME Mobile and Embedded Initiative (GMAE) today at the Embedded Linux Conference in Santa Clara, Calif. The initiative is aimed at bolstering GNOME usage as an embedded and mobile development platform. The initiative has been in development since last year, says GNOME Foundation board member Jeff Waugh. The platform will be distributed under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL). In the next 12 months the group plans to add a mobile email framework called Tinymail, the GeoClue geolocation service, Java Mobile & Embedded (Java ME), PulseAudio audio management, and the HAL hardware information system.

Um, dude, given that this is a user experience platform, we're kind of assuming a requirement for a GUI... That's the entire point of the GNOME Mobile Platform. Sure, you're unlikely to need a GUI in your industrial refrigeration system... So you're not going to be looking in our direction anyway.
