Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu As part of its initiative to improve the usability of the Linux desktop, Canonical has made a proposal for a desktop notification system for both GNOME and KDE. Mark Shuttleworth announced the proposal on his blog earlier this week. The mockup video shows notification more or less like the 3d party Growl system for Mac OS X. Since we are talking Linux here, the meat is in the implementation details and cross-desktop compatibility.

KDE 4.2 already has notifications as proposed by Shuttleworth. See for example: http://blog.sayakbanerjee.com/?p=95. I actually like them quite a lot and I am quite impressed by KDE 4.2
