Thats far from the truth though.. This would be the case if these
applications only relied on the common posix/glibc/whatever libraries
that are on any unix-like system..
However, things like, integrating with the window manager, are all
really os-specific. OS/X and windows are a lot easier there because you
can perfectly rely on certain libraries being always there, whereas with
linux.. you never know what you can expect..
I read about similar issues porting the flashplayer.. loads of problems
because they didn't know which sound driver would be installed, which
window manager, etc etc..
