Graphics, User Interfaces This is the seventh article in a series on common usability and graphical user interface related terms [part I | part II | part III | part IV | part V | part VI]. On the internet, and especially in forum discussions like we all have here on OSNews, it is almost certain that in any given discussion, someone will most likely bring up usability and GUI related terms - things like spatial memory, widgets, consistency, Fitts' Law, and more. The aim of this series is to explain these terms, learn something about their origins, and finally rate their importance in the field of usability and (graphical) user interface design. In part VII, as promised in part VI, we focus completely on CDE, the Common Desktop Environment.

It came within my "Solaris Express Developer Edition" DVD.
(Be aware that your pc needs a lot of RAM to run it).
I prefer it to the Sun Gnome Desktop. (I love it).

Depends on which openSolaris distro you're referring to. The "Nevada" releases should have it in there, but the "Indiana" discs won't due to it not actually being a part of openSolaris. I'd assume none of the other community based distros would have it either for licensing reasons.
