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?

<< I'm not sure why unification/gui consistency is such an issue >>

because low usability most likely costs enormous amounts of money (lost productivity, annoying the heck out of people, degrading the computer as a tool, etc)?

<< In the windows world, there is very little consistency between applications >>

is that so? maybe. hopefully there will come a time when there are better alternatives than ms windows though.
