It's official: our first desktop app will be for Linux / FreeDesktop.org-compliant desktops.

And it's coming out this week 😀

@timapple ❤️ and I love when you have plenty of memory left to do other things after running this app!

@write_as @timapple That's a catchy chant for the desktop application bloat protests.

@write_as That looks like an Elementary app. Are you sure you want to claim (and maintain it) as Cross Desktop compatible? Just cause it might be able to run on GNOME/KDE/w.e it wont mean that it will look and function as expected.

I hope the burden that comes with such claim will not big on you, but that hasn't been my experience thus far.

@alatiera It's a pretty simple app that really shouldn't have too many problems. But what kind of things should I be looking out for?

@write_as @alatiera developing on elementary's stylesheet wont make your application look very nice on gnomes stylesheet

and kde of course assumes all gtk apps were built on gnomes stylesheet, so itll work just wont look very nice on most peoples desktops but itll work

@write_as How did I miss this? Maybe I follow to many people. Good to hear about this.
