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 understand it is also a widget toolkit. Are there any relevant applications based on it?

Motif is the widget toolkit and currently it is still not yet open sourced, but there is OpenMotif and actually that is used to build CDE currently.

Here seems to be a list of apps using Motif toolkit: http://www.openmotif.org/wiki/random

Looks like OpenMotif (which really just seems to be one of Motif distribution methods) is also not yet open sourced...

Yes Motif, which has functions that rival Win32 in the amount of parameters.

It makes somewhat sense, Motif was supposed to mimic Windows' look/feel, I guess they wanted the behavior to be similar down to the API level...
