I thought it was generally considered that "GNOME" was really "Gnome"
and that the acronym was silently being consigned to the 
"Really awful acronyms" chapter in the history books.

How is it confusing to users?

As opposed to the confusion arising from seeing 
"GNU Network Object Model Environment"
and thinking "WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT ABOUT????"

(Bear in mind, I'm in no way a 'new user'
 and I still think "WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT ABOUT????"
 whenever I'm presented with
 GNU Network Object Model Environment)

<dobey> ^iain^: fuck you. don't ever fucking talk to me in any manner,
        direct or indirect, again.
