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.

What I didn't like about CDE was that you couldn't have access to the miniaturized apps or to the dock if you had a maximized window. I am sure some keyboard shortcut exists for both, but it should be an option, because most people don't know shortcuts during the first days the use a GUI (if they ever learn them). It has to be intuitive.
