X11, Window Managers We have some very good news for those of us with a love for the Common Desktop Environment. I'm a huge fan of CDE - I've even dedicated an article to it - so I'm excited about this. CDE has been released as open source under the LGPL, and can be downloaded as of today for Debian and Ubuntu. Motif will follow later.

My first experience with it was on an AIX workstation donated to the IT lab when I was in college. I was one of the few students with prior *nix experience so the lab manager asked me to help him with setting it up. It was a blast! Until then I had only worked with FVWM, blackbox and twm and I loved CDE's approach to desktop management.

I suppose that's why I took so well to Xfce when I switched to it from Gnome so many years later.
