The GNOME Mobile & Embedded Initiative (GMAE), also known as GNOME Mobile, is an initiative for developing and promoting the use of the GNOME platform in mobile devices. It was announced at the Embedded Linux Conference in Santa Clara, California on April 19, 2007.[1]

Software architecture[edit]

GNOME Mobile strips a lot of the old deprecated stuff that still needs to hang around on the desktop for backward compatibility, and adds mobile-specific components like matchbox (window manager), a window manager that’s highly tuned for mobile integrated devices. GNOME mobile uses and optimizes the mainline codebase as used in the Desktop, in the same way you have the same core Linux kernel from a phone up to a huge supercomputer.
