"As Linux muscles its way into large-scale commercial environments, it needs a solid CDE. Here it is."

"Recently, many commercial UNIX systems have adopted a common desktop user interface called the Common Desktop Environment (CDE), so it's natural that a company like Xi Graphics would offer maXimum cde for Linux.
