CDE (for Common Desktop Environment) is a proprietary desktop environment for UNIX, based on the Motif widget toolkit.
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 GNU/Linux platform, which already had a larger user base than most commercial Unices in total.
The Definitive Desktop Environment Comparison Compares UI and usability of several desktop environments (DEs) that are widely used, admired, reviled: Windows XP Luna, BeOS 6 (Dano/Zeta), Mac OS X Aqua, Unix KDE and GNOME.

 Desktop environment   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
One can think of a desktop environment as a set of tools that make UNIX and X act like the GUIs of Microsoft Windows or Apple Macintosh.
Well-known examples include GNOME, KDE, CDE and XFce; however, a number of other desktop environments also exist, including (but not limited to): EDE, UDE, ROX Desktop, GEM, PerlTop, XPde, Xito and arm0nia.
Some window managers also include elements reminiscient of those found in desktop environments; most prominently Enlightenment.

 Ars Technica: The K Desktop Environment - Page 1 (3/99)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
KDE is really not a window manager, nor a widget set; it's what it says it is: a desktop environment (some call it a desktop manager).
KDE provides a complete desktop environment, including a file manager, a window manager, a help system, a configuration system, uncountable tools and utilities, and an ever increasing number of applications, including but not limited to mail and news clients, drawing programs, a postscript and a dvi viewer and so forth.
Personally, I believe that KDE 1.1 is a modestly extensible, quick, and stable environment, and I think you'll see from this review that KDE is putting a face on Linux that's bridging the gap between so-called established, "easy to use" OSes--like Windows and the MacOS--and Linux, the mythically evil, CLI-based realm of pain and suffering.

 The Common Desktop Environment
The task of integrating in-house and third party applications into a desktop, often the most difficult aspect of a desktop installation, is simplified by CDE.
After the initial task of integrating applications so that they fit within session management, further integration can be done to increase their overall common look-and-feel ; with the rest of the desktop and to take advantage of the full range of CDE functionality.
Actions allow applications to be launched using desktop icons, and they ease administration by removing an application's specific details from the user interface.

 freedesktop.org - Desktops
The second flavor of X desktop includes a desktop environment only; no development framework is included.
The line between this flavor of desktop and a plain old window manager is a bit blurry; many people would describe XFce, WindowMaker, and Enlightenment as desktops in this category.
Desktops can be mixed-and-matched; for example, you can run Enlightenment together with GNOME or KDE components; you can run applications developed with the GNOME or KDE development framework under any of the X desktops.

The desktop shell itself is only a basic framework and not yet ready for CVS, but will be emerging into CVS during the course of this year.

The Common Desktop Environment (CDE) is an integrated graphical user interface for open systems desktop computing.
It delivers a single, standard graphical interface for the management of data and files (the graphical desktop) and applications.
CDE's primary benefits -- deriving from ease-of-use, consistency, configurability, portability, distributed design, and protection of investment in today's applications -- make open systems desktop computers as easy to use as PCs, but with the added power of local and network resources available at the click of a mouse.
