Well, first of all in spite of people saying "noone" or "everyone" without providing an argument. It's my pet peeve. I think we're professional enough to keep some assertiveness in our communication.

Secondly, I personally find it interesting that the project which sparked KDE (it's name was intended as a wordplay on the CDE) is still maintained, at least at it's glacial pace. Together with still existing development of WindowMaker it gives some perspective on window managers in general, and their progress.

Call me old fashioned, but I find that fascinating. Also, I still use WM on my older laptop.

The rudeness above notwithstanding, really, I would be interested to know. What sort of systems and software uses CDE today?
