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.

CDE on Linux

Ports to Linux are hard to find (I believe Red Hat 6.x had CDE somewhere)

The RedHat 4.2 version was shipped (optionally) with the CDE of TriTeal Corp.

I'm unable to use it on modern Linux versions due to its very ancient library dependency.

Now Open Group and with all the requesters we have an oportunity to enjoy with it on newer Linux versions.
