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.

Maybe IBM could take the hint, and release some technologies that was used in OS/2. System Object Model (SOM), DSOM, Workplace Shell, OS/2 for the PowerPC etc. I'm pretty sure many developers would love to see those in the open source world too!
