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.

I've never used CDE and I'll probably stick with LXDE but I'm still very glad to see this and, if I can ever find the time, I'll probably play around with it just for curiosity's sake.

It'll also be very nice if the planned LGPL release of Motif prompts Gentoo maintainers (who, last I checked, consider LessTif too much work for too little gain) to offer a fully libre way to run Motif-based apps like GNU DDD.

W8, how did an application using non-free toolkit end up under GNU umbrella?! ;)
