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.

Good for the community, I'll pass.

This decision is very good for the open source community and CDE fans.

Me, I'll pass as I never liked it, specially because on the enterprise 15 years ago there was no other choice.

While at home I could enjoy Afterstep, Window Maker and Enlightment, at work I had to use the dull CDE.
