bash but not gnu bash????? Most likely you are seeing an older bash
version (2.03 or maybe an 1.x version) that just doesn't work the same
way your latest bash shell works.
As for CDE, please speak for yourself about it being "ugly", My XFCE
desktop has a CDE theme, and I rather like it, personally speaking.
Sivasankar Chander has given you some rather accurate information about
CDE, in this thread, so it saves me repeating it all.
