Linux Installing software on Linux has gotten progressively easier over the years, down to being downright foolproof in Ubuntu's Application Center. However, there is still the problem of each distribution relying on its own frontends and backends, and this needs to be addressed. Members from all the major Linux distributions have held several talks, and have come up with a solution which is already being implemented.

Hopefully osnews keeps tracking this matter. OCS can be a big unifying protocol in the future, but it needs a bit of hype.

http://opendesktop.org/ is something of a "hidden" project, there was some talk about it back when kde was drumming up "social desktop", but now it seems to be a bit more quiet. OCS protocol, otoh, seems to be popping up here and there.
