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.

Yes, easy once you memorize them. But easy to mix up once a new version is around the corner. And several years later, it's a lot harder to remember exactly what codename a specific release was, but again, the version number is a different story.

Debian's Toy Story code names are a lot easier than Ubuntu's even wackier ones though, I'll give 'em that.

If the names are unclear, you can always use the title; stable, testing or unstable. Debian Testing just froze a week or so back which means it's basically in Beta working towards becoming the new Stable version.

Saves you worrying about version numbers and nick-names.
