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.

Hahahahahahaha!! Such a joker!! Did you ever use Microsoft Bob? If you think OS X is like Microsoft Bob, I doubt it.

Please don't mix graphical representations the general of real life in isolated apps with Bob. They are far removed. I find OS X far less offensive than the Crayola XP interface. The default control panel was fcuking insulting. The window dressing actually messed with the physical size of Windows and broke apps that made assumptions about the width of the title bar. For me, Windows 7 is every much as Crayola, and Windows 8 and the UI formerly known as Metro is more of the same. Simply depressing. I'd take the Windows 95/2000 classic theme over the god awful XP/7/8 themes any day of the week.
