    now free on all UNIX-based and compatible systems GOOD, now is there an illumos-based port? (say on OpenIndiana)

    CDE is awesome .. FreeBSD works good (tested it) :) OpenBSD --- well im still waiting on my feedback as i came across a error, but i should get it to work with a bit of help from the community... NOW it needs a OpenIndiana port , so that it will make use the system again, as far it having really only gnome2 , i have no interest. so maybe someone in the Oi community can port CDE to Oi-151a8 eh, maybe alot of people will pick it up.. not everyone is a gnome2 fan.. this is why im here i love CDE , and why im going back on OpenBSD. :) I can't wait for this to become Stable and thanks CDE-Dev to give this to us.. you make alot of users happy :D

    As someone who purchased the old Xi Graphics DeXtop CDE for Linux back in the day, I'm glad to see this become available. I too am writing my review from a PowerPC Mac, a G5 in this case running Ubuntu 12.04 and CDE! Very happy to see this!

    I love CDE. It's my favorite, by far. But for some reason, I can't change or create any palettes. Is there any way that I can create a palette in '.dt/palettes' or '/usr/dt/palettes'? I've already modified the screen blanking settings with full control using file configuration. (I have no idea what the numbers in the *.dp files mean or how to properly redact them; please help.) CDE Is STILL the BEST, don't get me wrong. But just seems a little immature in some areas, but I know you're all working very hard to make CDE more mature
