HP-VUE Lives!

I just saw this on the OpenIndiana mailing list.

HP-VUE (Visual User Environment) was a Graphical User Interface created by Hewlett Packard.

After a while it was adopted by Sun and others as the default GUI for a Unix Environment.

A lot of money and time was poured into it’s development.

While VUE was renamed the Common Desktop Environment another GUI project was started as an open source program.

That was Gnome version 1.0.

Gnome 1.0 could be compile in a day or two and worked fairly well.

Then came Gnome 2.x which replaced CDE as the default GUI environment for both Unix as well as Linux.

And some Linux distros now support Gnome 3.x while Solaris still uses 2.x.

And now CDE has come back as an Open Source Program.

As Alan Coopersmith (Solaris X Windows God/Programmer) wrote:

Holy water … check.
Wooden stakes … check.
Silver bullets … check.
Chainsaw … check.

Okay, all ready here, we’ll make sure it can’t get back in.

For the rest of you head on over to:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/cdesktopenv/

and prepare to relive the horror.
