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.

Well, of course old doesn't mean bad. I myself am a huge fan of many old projects, like BeOS, OpenVMS. But that's just a different thing and different history. BeOS died and Haiku OS was born as an open source [from the start], and OpenVMS ... was never *open*, so there's no real problem anyway.
I would be more than pleased to know why exactly did they open their sources. This would give us valuable information and ... their motives.

Might I add I don't try to take your joy away, CDE users! I can imagine you really love it and I have nothing against it. I'm just being suspicious ... or critical if you will.
