How to determine the version of GNOME running on your Ubuntu Linux

GNOME is a free and open-source desktop environment for Unix-like operating systems. GNOME was originally an acronym for GNU Network Object Model Environment, but the acronym was dropped because it no longer reflected the vision of the GNOME project. GNOME 3 features a completely reimagined user interface designed to stay out of your way, minimize distractions, and help you get things done. Kindly visit the following similar guides.
