On Linux ...

I was looking at the Unity tray icon code I submitted a while back and it
had stopped working on my desktop environment. I was also looking for a way
to track user log off events, monitor clipboard history, and how to
register a global hot key.

The sheer scattering of different systems, libraries, and what not that I
needed to search through to find solutions which are typically as simple as
a single function on a single document site with Windows prompted me to
write this brief diatribe:

The Problem with the Linux Desktop

I also posted that page to the r/linux
and am likely to get down voted there, but if anyone wants to chime in,
feel free. It might make use both feel better.
