I am not an expert on either desktop, but here is my take on it. I use
the CDE every day at work. It is ok as an interface. I prefer it to Open
Windows which also comes with the Solaris I use. I prefer the KDE by
far. It is easier to manipulate and configure. It comes with a fist full
of useful tools. It looks better. The KDE can access web resources
directly from the file manager. It treats all desktop objects as URL's
which is a good thing for the future. Unfortunately it is not the best
tool for surfing the net. It is a bit unstable, and as far as I know, it
cannot run Java applets. AFAIK, the CDE costs about $100 and the KDE
costs about $0. I believe the KDE is a better buy. IMHO the best thing
about the KDE is that it is GPL'ed and is thus in the spirit of Linux.
As far as the CDE Sim goes. Don't! it just kinda looks like the CDE. It
doesn't have the functionality of either the CDE or KDE.
