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 first used CDE on AIX workstation and really fell in love with the color themes. Specially the terminal like this one. Haven't found the color themes for other DE-s and now I finally have an opportunity to try it on Linux Absolutely beautiful for me ;)

Curiously, though I never used it, I still have this "that's a GUI for Real Work(tm)" perception ingrained in my mind ...maybe from ~films (non-horrible ones, WRT to depicting how computers looks like), or photos of scientific labs & experiments.

Have used CDE on both AIX and Solöaris and I really didn't like the default color theme on Solaris but AIX was perfect. Specially the terminal colors. Have used above mentioned screenshot many times to pick the colors and make my terminals look the same.
