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?

To clarify

Hi all,

I wrote the article, and I wanted to clarify something. In the article I am not simply referring to the look of an application and it using the native desktop theme; I am on about things such as font use, file/save dialogs, usability standards, accessability, user configuration and other areas. I am basically saying that if we took the GIMP as an example, and we run it in KDE, it should use the KDE theme, use the KDE dialogs, allow for cut and paste in KDE etc.

It is great to see so many comments by the way. Cheers. ;)
