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.

I used CDE on Solaris back in the 90s. I thought it was an okay experience and that might have grown out of the fact it was one of the earlier full blown desktop environments I'd used. Up until then I'd been mostly command line only, with some limited exposure to Windows 98.

Coming from a mostly DOS background I certainly found it easier to adapt to the CDE desktop than the complexity of the Unix command line.
