    Finally. Maybe this means that well-looking desktop environments will have their renaissance.

    What? Motif is hideous. Qt (and GTK) are better in every way, the only thing this benefits is legacy apps.

    Qt is ugly. I am not blind enough for these designs. Maybe when I'm over 60 and need large, colorful buttons, I'll come back to it.

    Default CDE

    This is good if you for some reason want to run CDE (Common Desktop Environment) which was popular in the mid-90s.

    It was used by Solaris, HP-UX, AIX, IRIX, etc.

    Don't forget OpenCDE.

    I actually like it.

    I've used that. It was hideous. Nobody serious wants to use motif. At the very least they are more than ten years to late to open source it.
