D-BUS is a powerful yet simple IPC system that will improve, with luck, the integration and functionality of Linux systems. Users are encouraged to investigate new D-BUS utilizing applications. With this article in hand, D-BUS shouldn't be a scary new dependency, but a shining new feature. The on-line Resources list some interesting applications that use D-BUS. Developers are encouraged to investigate implementing D-BUS support in their applications. There are also some Web sites that provide more information on using D-BUS. Of course, the best reference is existing code, and thankfully there is plenty of that.
