This is problem I've found during the translation of the website into
italian: "Gnome is computing made easy" can't have a good translation
in italian, so we choose to have "Usare il computer non e' mai stato
cosi' facile".. which sound in english like "Using a computer.. has
never been so easy". (see http://www.it.gnome.org)
BTW, "GNOME is GNU made easy" sound much much better to me, even
translated into italian.
