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.

Platinum was familiar to YOU, that does not meant that it is superior to Aqua.


One could make the case that given the significant increases in user base Apple experienced after the introduction of Aqua, whereas Platinum was stagnant at best, that it would seem that people prefer Aqua (OSX) to Platinum (Sytem 8/9).
