  Common Desktop Environment - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Common Desktop Environment (CDE) is a proprietary desktop environment for UNIX, based on the Motif widget toolkit.
CDE was jointly developed by Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Novell and Sun Microsystems in The Open Group.
Until about 2000, CDE was considered the de facto standard for UNIX desktops, but at that time, free software desktop environments such as KDE and GNOME were quickly becoming mature, and became almost universal on the Linux platform, which already had a larger user base than most commercial Unixes in total.
