I am really glad to see the progress on CDE port. CDE is a very important part of computer history and to this day, the CDE defines the serious big unix box synonym for me. I've dreamed running CDE on my everyday machine forever. It makes me feel hardcore unix guru for some reason. However I use Windows on my everyay life and I still have to get some linux/BSD up and get the CDE a go.

As most people have horrible memories about CDE from their university's Solaris class, I have VERY fond memories of it from the AIX boxes I had at work. AIX is a really cool proprietary Unix and would like to have an RS/6000 box in the corner. It is so cool ;)
