Linux Jono Bacon has written an article on my O'Reilly Blog called The path to unified interaction which looks at the challenges of making our software work natively in the different desktop environments on Linux. Do you think this is something we should strive for, and if so, do you think it is technically possible?

in addition to this i would also like to know why "user interfaces should be monolithic and hard coded" as a gnome developer (Havoc Pennington) put it. does that not make it harder for applications to adapt to different environments and different users needs -- and thus making it harder to acheive a consistent desktop?
