"A complete, easy to use desktop interface has been released by Xi Graphics Inc. The new DeXtop graphical user interface (GUI) is based on the Open Group's CDE or Common Desktop Environment, an environment that's familiar to the computing industry, yet easy enough to use for those new to the Linux operating system."

"This product will definitely appeal to the corporate market," said Lee Roder, national sales manager at Xi Graphics. "It is the same Motif/CDE interface found on workstations from Compaq, IBM, HP and Sun, and offers complete interoperability with these platforms."

"The package includes Open Motif 2.1.30, CDE and a complete development environment including all the components necessary to compile CDE/Motif applications. Linux desktop and laptop users will find that DeXtop is a powerful GUI for all Linux distributions. Although DeXtop may work with other X servers, it is highly recommended that it be used with the Xi Graphics Accelerated-X(TM) or 3D Accelerated-X(TM) Display Servers. (X servers contain the software that controls and drives computer graphics hardware; they are not part of the Linux operating system.)"
