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.

Thanks, Open Group. Looking forward to the release of Motif as well. Speaking of which, check out this Motify GUI from the Wayback Machine: http://www.breadbox.com/geoscreens/motif.gif


Nice you mentioned it. I've been using GeoWorks Ensemble 3.0 (not sure about the version number, but it was before NDO or BBE) on DOS many years ago, still being impressed on how they did get things done that today's "Windows" is (natively) still incapable of, like real drag & drop, or pinning menues.
