Or maybe 1993, depending how you want to define things. The project wiki main page mentions 1993 as the start of development and says that the current release "represents the source code state in 1999." Over on the project Q&A page mentions 1995 as when "Release 1.0" came out, and says that the current release is "almost identical to the 2.1.30 release The Open Group made available to their customers in 1999." I know, I know. I have a lot of nerve...you probably wrote those pages!zizban wrote:The code isn't from 1999. It's from 1995
I wasn't a big fan of CDE way back when, especially since IRIX was my first Unix, but I would definitely prefer the simplicity and predictability of CDE over the latest Gnome or other gee-whiz linux desktop environment that's out there. I just hope that it doesn't end up getting fubar'ed by overzealous linux interface developers.zizban wrote:It's pretty stable on my Ubuntu 12.04 box. Somethings don't work but a lot does.
