Oracle and SUN This past year has been a breakthrough for Sun for both their Linux and Solaris products. The most intriguing news of all is possibly the challenge Sun poses to Microsoft with their Desktop Initiative announced a couple of months ago. We spoke to Bill Moffitt, Product Line Manager of the Solaris Lifecycle, about Linux, the desktop and Solaris. Update: Bill Moffitt replies on our forums.

Can't you read? I clearly write there that Sun will still offer CDE as the *default* DE, not Gnome2.

And if in the future (Solaris 10 or something) they replace it with Gnome2 completely or offer Gnome2 as the default DE, by that time Gnome2 will have already be many times better than CDE. It already feels better, but it is not as stable as CDE yet (I installed tonight Gnome2 Beta-3 on my loaned SPARC Blade 150 and it froze after 30 mins of using it ;) )
