Searching for 'freedesktop.org', 'fd.o', 'f.d.o', and 'fdo' yields no
results. Searching for 'standard' only reveals that they:
* have created a specification to standardise icon names across
desktops (which, I will note, is not the same as calling something
'a standard', but seems to have a lot of interest from various
desktops anyway), and
* 'hope to eventually provide a subsystem to help standardize
toolkits on a common look and feel'.
