If you've noticed a disruption in the time-space continuum recently, it is likely because I have finally been able to compile and install the Common Desktop Environment (CDE) in a current and actively-developed operating system (OpenBSD 6.2 in this case).

Since it's been a while - I love CDE.

I don't know about anyone else, but having used CDE on Solaris for a year as a young(er) professional, I'm fairly comfortable in my position that CDE was horrible because it was a terrible user experience with endless non-discoverable functionality, non-orthogonal usability, required a text editor to make anything but the most basic configuration changes, and yes, was ugly.
