X11, Window Managers We have some very good news for those of us with a love for the Common Desktop Environment. I'm a huge fan of CDE - I've even dedicated an article to it - so I'm excited about this. CDE has been released as open source under the LGPL, and can be downloaded as of today for Debian and Ubuntu. Motif will follow later.

Hi, I am the documentation lead for the CDE project.

The people behind OpenCDE are involved with CDE as well. A FreeBSD port is in progress.

There is an issue with dthello that is making it impossible for it to run on other distributions other than Debain Squeeze and Ubuntu. It's related to rpcbind and it's being worked on.

I'm curious, why it was released now? The petitioning worked? (from http://www.marutan.net/cde/ seems there was some decent amount of good will; hm, and I just stumbled on it recently from http://www.marutan.net/rpcemu/ ) The Open Group largely lost interest, and threw it out there for those still wanting to use it and/or maintaining older apps?
