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.

This is quite a dream coming true here, at least for me. Now I can use CDE even on the go on my laptop. I'm enjoying it right now, it works wonderful.

I had to build it sans documentation on Debian Squeeze, because it would stop with an error while generating the docs for Appmanager, AFAICT. On CentOS the doc was not the problem, but the whole story with the RPC implementation not being compatible.

I always liked CDE, especially the configuration via Xresources made a lot more sense to me than the XML stuff the gnome folks are using.

Keep it simple.
