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.

Does CDE use the same mechanism as OpenCDE to mount stuff?

i.e. a script that runs setuid root?

If so...
a) Eww
b) It won't completely work on modern UNIXes

Nope, No code from OpenCDE is being used. OpenCDE is deprecated and it's developer is part of the CDE project now.

I'm pretty sure scripts can't be setuid, at least that's the case on OpenBSD.
