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?

Some (I think) test shots I've found on Jimmac's site:

Notice how Yast almost looks like a Gtk+ app in the first shot and how the boot screen shows "Powered by" [SuSE Icon] and [Ximian Icon].

Of course, it's just speculation, but from looking at those screenshots I'd say they're going to use the Ximian stuff for the default DE.

Aw well, as long as it looks nice and works well it's fine with me.
