"New Free Resource to Aid Linux and UNIX GUI Programmers."

"Imperial Software Technology (IST) today announced the launch of a new Web site, www.motifdeveloper.com, a free resource for programmers building graphical applications using the Motif toolkit on the X Window System. Motif is the standard graphical look-and-feel delivered with most versions of the UNIX operating system, including Sun's Solaris, HP-UX, SGI Irix and IBM's AIX. Now programmers working with Motif have a new expert resource to consult for technical assistance and information. Motifdeveloper.com is a completely revised version of the original "Motif on the World Wide Web" (MW3) site founded by Ken Sall, originally of Century Computing and now of Commerce One. The new site will be regularly updated with hints and tips for Motif programmers and will provide a Q&A service backed by IST's technical support resources and specialist expert staff."

"Motif is the most successful graphical user interface toolkit available for UNIX platforms," said Allen Brown, President and CEO of The Open Group. "We support the provision of as much information about Motif as possible and the motifdeveloper web is an excellent example of that. This will have the dual benefit of increasing the use of Motif and result in a growth in the number of applications ultimately benefiting the end-user."
