There is both zenity and notify-send. (on Fedora/GNOME at least, both seems to be pre-installed.)

So considering I want to show notifications, what are the differences between these too ones?

Is there anyone that is installed in more distros or so (by default)? Is the process of showing notifications any different? Is anyone maybe more compatible to some desktop environments? Is it even available on some desktop environments?

I also noticed the documentation on notify-send is pretty spare. In my Fedora installation, it does not even have a man page…
