Come back, CDE

Slowly but certainly, CDE is riding into the sunset. Farewell, you ugly bastard.

Starting with this release, when a user logs in to the Solaris Desktop for the first time, Sun Java Desktop System (Java DS) is the default desktop environment instead of the Common Desktop Environment (CDE). Java DS has also become the default environment for users who chose a desktop environment on an earlier Solaris release that is no longer present in this Solaris release, such as OpenWindowsTM or GNOME 2.0.

He done some good and the java gang got him in the end. It's for the best - the West is closing and has no place for that kind.

CDE - come back, CDE! [1]

[1]Tip o' the hat to the best Western ever made.
