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.

He's talking about the Indigo Magic desktop environment, not IRIX itself.

That said, the reason OpenSolaris failed miserably has more to do with the braindead decisions with licensing and general lack of support from Sun/Oracle than the OS itself. I'm sure if they'd gone GPL or BSD style licensing there would've been a great deal more interest.
