Gnome Monosoupape

The Monosoupape, was a rotary engine design first introduced in 1913 by Gnome Engine Company (since 1915 called Gnome et Rhône). It used a clever arrangement of internal transfer ports and a single valve to replace a large number of moving parts found on more conventional rotary engines, and made the Monosoupape engines some of the most reliable of the era. British aircraft designer Thomas Sopwith described the Monosoupape as "one of the greatest single advances in aviation".

GnomeVFS is short for GNOME Virtual File System. It provides an abstraction layer for the reading, writing and execution of files. It was primarily used by the Nautilus file manager and other GNOME applications before GNOME 2.22. A cause of confusion is the fact that the file system abstraction used by the Linux kernel is also called the virtual file system (VFS) layer. This is however at a lower level.

Gnome-Rhône 14N

Gnome-Rhône 7K

The Gnome-Rhône 7K Titan Major was a 7-cylinder 370 hp (270 kW) air-cooled radial engine, that started life as an enlarged Gnome-Rhône 5K with two extra cylinders. The Gnome-Rhône 5K was itself a licensed version of the Bristol Titan. The 7K is very comparable to the Bristol Neptune 7-cylinder engine since they used the same technology. The 7K was followed by the larger and more powerful 9-cylinder 550 hp (405 kW) Gnome-Rhône 9K Mistral.

Castle Gnome

Castle Gnome is a virtual art project by Stefan Roloff. It was developed in a team effort with the web marketer Diego Gomez, the photographer Christian Jungeblodt and the 3D animator Frank Kunkel with music by Martin Rev and Johannes Roloff. Roloff’s inspiration arose from the heated debate about the reconstruction of the square. Defenders of the city castle's re-construction and their adversaries, the defenders of the former Communist Palace of the Republic called each other "philistine.

Gnome (Dungeons & Dragons)

In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, gnomes are one of the core races available for play as player characters. Some speculate that they are closely related to dwarves; however, gnomes are more tolerant of other races and of magic, and are skilled with illusions. Gnomes are Small sized humanoids, standing 3-3½ feet (90-105 centimeters) tall.

These gnomes had their base in the village of Hoogeloon. From Hoogeloon the gnomes often made journeys in the neighbourhood.

Gnome-Rhône 18L

The Gnome et Rhône 18L was a French-designed twin-row 18-cylinder air-cooled radial engine. The 18L was a large step up in terms of displacement, power and number of cylinders. The majority of Gnome-Rhone engines were either 7, 9 or 14 cylinders. The engine proved not to be a success, and it was dropped in 1939 due to a poor power-to-weight ratio. The American and British 18-cylinder engines proved lighter, smaller and generally more reliable.

Gnome-Rhône 9K

The Gnome-Rhône 9K was a 9-cylinder 550 hp (405 kW) to 700 hp air-cooled radial engine, that started life as an enlarged Gnome-Rhône 7K with two extra cylinders. The Gnome-Rhône 7K itself was an enlarged version of the Gnome-Rhône 5K which was derived from a licensed version of the Bristol Titan . A redesign of the cylinders is indicated by the K suffix. The 9K was followed by the larger and more powerful 14-cylinder twin row Gnome-Rhône 14K.

Gnome Speech

The GNOME Speech API allows developers to incorporate speech technology into user interfaces for their GNOME applications. This API specifies a cross-platform interface to support command and control recognizers, dictation systems and speech synthesizers. This GSAPI release is just a specification, not an implementation. The plan is to release it to the GNOME community for review.

GNOME Storage

GNOME Storage was a project to replace the traditional file system with a new document store. Storage was part of a larger design for a new desktop environment that was still under development. The current implementation includes natural language access and network transparency. Storage is no longer being developed; its CVS tree has not been changed for several years.

Gnome Island

Gnome Island is a rocky island lying between the east end of Blaiklock Island and Thomson Head near the head of Bourgeois Fjord, off the west coast of Graham Land, Antarctica. It was first surveyed in 1949 by the Falkland Islands Dependencies Survey, and so named by them because of the resemblance of the island to a small gnomelike creature rising from the sea.

GNOME Hispano

GNOME Hispano is the Spanish-speaking GNOME group, which tries to bring news, documentation and applications to all Spanish-speaking GNOME users and developers. Amongst its activities included are the translation of applications and documentation, writing of new documentation in Spanish, geared towards beginners, and the organization of some events, like the GUADEC conference held in Sevilla in April 2002.


The Astro-Gnome was a rather bizarre American automobile manufactured in 1956 by the Richard Arbib Co. of New York. Described as looking "like something out of a Flash Gordon film", the car had fluted aluminum side panels that had been anodized in different blending colors. It had a bubble canopy that gave unobstructed vision all around; this covered the passengers, but could be raised to allow walk-in entry and exit. Only one prototype was constructed.

Gnome-Rhône Mistral Major

The Gnome-Rhône 14K Mistral Major was a 14-cylinder, two-row, air-cooled radial engine. It was Gnome-Rhône's major aircraft engine prior to World War II, and matured into a highly sought-after design that would see licensed production throughout Europe and Japan. Thousands of Mistral Major engines were produced, used on a wide variety of aircraft.

Gnome BitTorrent

GNOME BitTorrent (sometimes called simply GnomeTorrent) is a BitTorrent client included in recent versions of the GNOME desktop environment. It is designed to be easy to use and to integrate well with the rest of the desktop. Unlike larger clients such as Vuze, it lacks features such as queueing and does not display numerous details about the file you are downloading.

GNOME-DB is a database application by the GNOME community. The project aims to provide a free unified data access architecture to the GNOME project for all Unix platforms. GNOME-DB is useful for any application that accesses persistent data (not only databases, but data), since it now contains a data management API.

Gnome Basic

Gnome Basic (GB) was a software project whose goal was to provide Visual Basic compatible functionality for the GNOME project. Compatible functionality with Microsoft Office's Visual Basic for Applications was considered especially important. The project has since been discontinued, and apparently never went beyond the development stage. The Mono project, which implements VB. NET, largely supersedes it.
