GNOME PERU FEST 2015 presents the Linux project GNOME 3.14.

Because the GNOME is a desktop interface that runs over an Operative System to be used. We promote the use of Fedora and Ubuntu as Operative System for final users (desktop vesrions) and Red Hat for companies (server versions).

We are going to present the GNOME project with international GNOME people from Spain, and the FEDORA project with LATAM Ambassadors. This year the event will also be focus in IT solutions that use Linux in sectors such as bussiness and goverment. Specialists from IBM, Nexsys, Neosecure and PetroPeru will show us how they use GNU/Linux in companies.
