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?

Freedesktop.org is NOT meant to unify the desktop environments. This is most likely not possible due the total different architectures and frameworks they use. But that Freedesktop.org offers is a place for people to try finding some agreement how new or better solutions can be done so all participant parties can benefit from it. Not everything designed and decided by the one side will be adopted by the other sides and vice verca.
