Linux desktop and Sailfish OS are kind of mutually exclusive things in
the sense the Sailfish provides a home screen, i.e. "desktop".

Gkt+ applications could perhaps be possible, but not necessarily an API
that is going to get official support. Also desktop applications and
widget sets don't likely work nicely on a small mobile device as they
have not been commonly developed with finger usability in mind.
