GNOME is a feature-rich desktop environment provided by the GNOME Project. It is one of the most widely-used desktop environments for Linux desktops and has been an important part of Gentoo for many years.
Portage currently has GNOME version 3, that features a redesigned UI, which is a total upheaval for users of GNOME 2. Getting familiar with it, at least for its basics, only takes a matter of minutes provided the user is directed to the right entry point. A rather good entry point to quickly get familiar with this new UI is the GNOME Help page.
See the GNOME Guide sub-article for a more detailed approach on installing, configuring, and using GNOME.
