The current Linux commands used, gnome-open and kde-open, aren't standardized, and I don't even have gnome-open on my (Debian) Gnome 3 machine.
I've also removed the statement about there being no standard way to open URLs on Linux, since xdg-open is supposed to work across all desktops and dates from 2006.
