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 dislike CDE

I preferred OpenLook on Sun workstations :-(
before it was replaced by CDE and Motif.

I was in the same boat. I was very used to running olvwm and then sun switched over to CDE. It was a bear trying to configure CDE to act more like openlook. Even worse was all space wasted on the desktop FOR the desktop when I cared first and foremost about maximizing my code windows (which I did with openlook).
