It probably makes sense to try to get things working with one ORB, and
then see if it's worth generalising.  I'd guess ORBit is a good one to
start with since it's C-based, and it's pretty small: if I have to
install an extra package on my machine just to run PostgreSQL, I'm not
going to mind ORBit, whereas TAO might annoy me (IIRC, TAO is quite
big; I may be thinking of another ORB, though).  ORBit does IIOP, I
believe, so that covers GNOME and KDE people.
