OpenBSD

If you've noticed a disruption in the time-space continuum recently, it is likely because I have finally been able to compile and install the Common Desktop Environment (CDE) in a current and actively-developed operating system (OpenBSD 6.2 in this case).

Since it's been a while - I love CDE.

Used it for a bit and though it needed some work I really liked the look of it. Glad to see it back, thanks

Guess it has to be charged from the point of view of the stage of development it was in when it was more or less abandoned and what potential it would bear if development were to pick up again.
Wish somebody would get it to run on a more prevalent platform such as Debian so it might receive more attention.
Personally I feel we could really use another contender in the free desktop arena as Qt and GTK have both gone astray and OpenStep has stalled. We should really go back and start over at an early stage.
