The Open Source CDE and Motif petition

Peter Howkins writes "In an attempt to convince The Open Group that
they finally want to fully Open Source Motif
and CDE I've started a petition to help gauge
how much interest there is.

CDE, the Common Desktop Enviroment, was the
default desktop on several commercial UNIX
distributions. Motif is a X Windows widget
API used in many programs, including CDE
and other projects such as nedit and DDD.

I'm not going to try to convince anyone to
use either of them, but if you use them
and would like to see them Open Sourced
please sign the petition.

For more background information about CDE and
this petition visit the petition site
or go straight to signing the petition."
