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.

Motif is the key, IMHO. It was the most common tool kit that people used on UNIX gui apps. I'm sure some will benefit having it available for free. Lesstif almost always worked but there were a couple issues. If nothing else, it would make updating those older apps easier.
