Can you change this to explain what this means for a user (what does a
"notification-service" actually do)?  I suggest something like:

  GNotify provides a unified interface for applications to notify
  users of events by displaying pop-up messages or playing sounds.

  Gnotify is a lightweight daemon that works with Gnome, XFce, FVWM,
  Fluxbox, Enlightenment, and other desktop environments and window
  managers.  It is similar to KDE's "KNotify" system.

[I'm not very familiar with GNotify or KNotify, so some of the above may
be inaccurate.]
