Hi Richard and all,

Personally, in my talks about GNOME, often (depending on the audience),
before talking about GNOME itself, I talk about free software, its
principles, its benefits, its philosophy. Then I explain why GNOME was
created and how tied GNOME is with free software and the GNU project.

We should encourage people to do the same when talking about GNOME as a
project (in non technical talks). GNOME Marketing team is working on a
subproject called GNOME ambassadors: "We rely on GNOME Ambassadors like
you to spread the word of GNOME and teach people the advantages of using
a free desktop." (quote from This is
a great opportunity to do such task.
