    The battle has been won!

      This is pretty ridiculous, but not surprising. Having worked closely with a legal team at a large company before when trying to procure domain names, there’s no possible way they would have missed the GNOME trademark. This seems to be a case of “we can probably steal it for cheaper than it’d be to find another name.” I’d also imagine that there’s a domain purchase coming soon, which is probably pretty sizable, given that gnome.com has been registered since 1995.
