Descriptionfreedesktop.org is a free software project to work on interoperability and shared technology for desktop environments for the X Window System. The most famous X desktops are GNOME and KDE but any developers working on Linux/UNIX GUI technology are welcome to participate.

freedesktop.org wants to build a base platform for desktop software on Linux and UNIX. The elements of this platform become the backend for higher-level application-visible APIs, such as Qt, GTK+, XUL, VCL, WINE, GNOME, and KDE. The platform contains both code and specifications.

freedesktop.org is not currently a formal standards organization, though some see a need for one that covers some of the areas we are working on. For Linux operating system standards, please see the Linux Standard Base project. freedesktop.org is loosely affiliated with the Free Standards Group; the FSG is one group that does "de jure" standards for free software. The X.Org Foundation and the IETF are other groups that do formal standards.

Unlike these groups, freedesktop.org is just a "collaboration zone" where ideas and code can be tossed around, and de facto specifications encouraged. We also host any "on-topic" software projects, if you have a project that fits into our mission and needs hosting please let us know on our mailing list. Mailing lists on the software and discussions are hosted here as well.
