Portland project

"Portland will provide a common set of Linux desktop interfaces that allows applications to easily integrate with the Linux desktop that the end user or his organization has chosen to work with," said Waldo Bastian, a KDE engineer and a FreeDesktop leader.

Unlike the end-user-oriented Tango Desktop Project, where the idea is to create a consistent user experience on Linux desktops, Portland is designed to make it easier for ISVs to port their applications to the Linux desktop without worrying about the interface.
