Has anyone used this product and can attest to it's quality and being
a real product for XF 3.1++??
: : This certainly comes up a lot in this newsgroup. Anyway, Motif 2.0
: : is definitely an X11R5 product, NOT X11R6.
: This is not true, I have ported and am distributing Motif 2.0 with both
: a XFree86-2.x [X11R5] port and a XFree86-3.1 [X11R6] port
: : I am still using Motif 1.2.4 from Metrolink, and I do have to link
: : my Motif applications using the old libraries, but they can co-exist
: : with an X11R6 installation, as long as you keep the X11R5 libraries
: : around somewhere. You don't have to keep using Xfree86 2.1.1 for
: : all of your work if you don't want to.
: You mighjt want to consider my old posting
: OSF/Motif 2.0 (R) for Linux
: I am pleased to announce the availability of OSF/Motif 2.0
