Motif


Does someone use Motif on Linux? What do you think about the Motif? IF so please show to me that screenshot. I would like to install the Motif, but not sure if that is a right choice.

Thanks a lot

In what context do you use Motif? In my concept it is a programming language, that allows you to create GUI environment.

My bad, sorry. It incorporates a toolkit, that allows to create GUI, like CDE. And it is designed with UNIX in mind.

No problem, I know you can select a theme in gnome to reflect Motif modeling, but Motif itself is not free, I know Lesstif is a free substitution for Motif, and some refer to them as GUI's, but I believe they are toolkits to create GUI's, both of them have libraries associated with them, and basically they make GUI programming in C a lot easier.
