"An Interview with Antony Fountain Co-author of Volume 6B: Motif Reference Manual, 2nd Edition"

"Despite the clamor surrounding Linux and the Open Source movement, author and leading X/Motif software developer Antony Fountain maintains that Motif remains the quiet vanguard of commercial software development for large-scale Unix applications. As the native toolkit for the X Window System, a graphical Unix programming interface, Motif continues to be supported by major workstation vendors such as Sun, Hewlett-Packard, and SGI."

"Houston: Where and how is Motif being used most commonly these days?

Fountain: Motif is used throughout the industry, but its main users are the Fortune 500 commercial organizations and leading industrial concerns that produce large-scale, mission-critical, industrial-strength, internationalized, leading-edge software. It's also used heavily by the operating-system vendors themselves, in producing their own development environments."
