The Register reports that the two Linux desktop projects are actually talking after the
GUADEC GNOME developer conference in Copenhagen last week.
"Not only do the developers from the two camps agree that interoperability would be
a good thing - something they've said for ages -- they seem more willing to do
something about it.
In a report from the conference, Red Hat's David Mason notes that a hit list of
interoperability topics was made at a Birds of a Feather session, including file
formats and file types, drag and drop (which has been addressed, but not widely
adopted in XDND), printing, themes and documentation."
