There are at least four versions of Motif for Linux:
Moo-Tiff: InfoMagic, $99.95, documentation on CD-ROM only
MoTeeth: Just Computers, $99.95, includes manual
SWiM: Lasermoon (distributed by ACC Bookstore in US), $149 with manual
MWM: XInside, $149.95 with manual
So far as I know, all of these start with OSF source, and are built by
the vendors. The differences in price come from the different amounts
of printed documentation in the packages, and the level of support
from the vendor. The two inexpensive packages come from CD-ROM
packagers; the expensive ones come from programming shops, which
probably have more experience with the packages.
By the way, I think MWM is a poor choice of name, since mwm is also
the name of the Motif Window Manager program that is part of Motif.
