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.

I wonder if it will take off now, or at least be picked up by Debian as an official package in the repository. I think Squeeze just froze, so unfortunately it probably won't happen for another two years or so, when the next, next version is released.

Still, very cool. I'm interested to see how it turns out and develops, and any specialty Linux distros that are based on it. I've only used it briefly a couple times when I was playing around with Solaris (still owned by Sun at the time).
