Follow-up Comment #3, bug #34490 (project gnustep):


i don't think these APIs should depend on GWorkspace (i don't have it) and the
idea of having to wrap any linux app in existence ...  sounds not so bright.

>a. not work on any system without xdg-open 

AFAIK all linux distributions in the last few years have shipped it, and even
if it isn't there .. is just a fallback

>b. will prevent the code building on mswindows (no system function) 

an ifdef will fix that - there is no xdg-open on windows anyway.

> NSTask

i don't see a value in using a more complicated and problematic API in order
to ensure portability to a platform where xdg-open doesn't run anyway. i'm
sure windows has some native APIs to open file and URLs and this can be added
as an #else later on
