It includes IBM, Google, Intel and the Free Software Foundation, among others.

Speaking at the opening of GNOME's annual European conference (GUADEC), Sandler said: "We are excited to have the Linux Foundation join our Advisory Board, and look forward to working closely with them. Their membership in the Advisory Board is a recognition of the value that the GNOME Project brings to the GNU/Linux ecosystem, which is something that we hope to enhance even further in the future."

Joining the GNOME Advisory Board will give the Linux Foundation the organization a direct voice within the GNOME Project and will enable it to play a greater role in the future of GNOME.
