So now, instead of having one crappy looking desktop with crappy looking
applications, you can have four (or more) different ones. Fortunately, CDE
is not a necessity. My Ultra-5 is at the moment running KDE - better
looking, easier to play around with, and I can always put desktop links to
any dtapps or sdtapps I want. Unfortunately, the lab machines acn't get
the same treatment :-(
