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.

That would be nice, but OS/2 is still a commercial product under the guise of eCommstation. I think they would have a problem with IBM releasing those technologies. Then again, IBM might not even have the rights to the code anymore. I don't remember the terms of the sale, but I think releasing code would have to come from eCommstation.
