Is anyone using the old timey CDE (Common Desktop Environment)?

Oh, sweet nostalgia. At a terminal of the HP 3000 with Unix. Was a nice desktop back then and xfce was probably inspired by it. But that was a long time ago.

Yes, clearly from the dark ages... ;) I was, as I recall, on Vax VMS, motif, and a Vax Workstation in the late 1980s/ very early 1990s when I last used it.

I spent about 14 years with DEC from 1981 to 1994+ It was a wonderful place to work until the wheels came off about 1992.
