OpenCDE: A great new find

Some of you may know that I greatly enjoy using the Motif toolkit, as a stable, reliable, and comprehensive solution for GUI programs. I've always wanted to have a desktop environment like CDE that used the Motif toolkit instead of being based on GTK (XFCE) or Qt (KDE). Now, I can. The OpenCDE project is a great project that hopes to create a desktop that works and functions like CDE. The source code I have seen right now is undocumented, but fairly straightforward, and the compilation process is great.

I have high hopes that this is the future of CDE, and that finally, Motif can make a proper come back. (Yes, I know I know...).
