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.

Open Sourcing Motif (and CDE).

I did not knew initiatives were being taken to open source both Motif and CDE.

I would love to use CDE in Linux and even better to see Motif (real stuff) available for GUI development in Linux (instead of Open Motif).

What do you say about creating another and bigger petition here in OSNEWS ? <<<

Well "You can't always get what you want".
