Who is involved?

We are engineers, artists, and user interface designers. We'd like you to be involved.

Interested contributors from Gnome, KDE, and other free and open source projects are all welcome. We invite anyone working on software to follow the specifications defined here, as well as on FreeDesktop.org.
