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.

Good old Motif

I love the Motif widget set. I just wish that there was a decent open source version of the IRIX desktop. Motif just makes so much more sense with the way focus works. It stops you from making accidents with the mouse. Far superior to modern trash desktops. Too bad there aren't more apps written for Motif, it desperately needs a modern browser.

Click to focus can be enabled in just about any window manager, the widget set has little to do with that I think.

Motif was a god awful abomination to code for.
