I think I can shed some light on the availability of xdg-open.  It is
provided by xdg-utils, part of the freedesktop specification.  It is
expected to be present in most desktop systems (almost anything with a
GUI installed).  It is a direct dependency for kde-libs, gnome-libs, and
many desktop applications.

The introduction in this Archlinux wiki page gives a very succint
summary: <https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xdg-open>

Hope this helps,
