 The "Standard" [GUI] interface for Unix, based on the Motif toolkit. Since the Motif toolkit was proprietary[1], the OpenSource community didn't really embrace it much, and it got steamrolled by [GNOME] and [KDE]. I believe SunMicrosystems (one of the major supporters of [CDE]) have decided in the latest releases of Solaris to bundle [GNOME] as well as [CDE] and give users the option of which to use.
