CDE can actually be installed on Centos 7 through yum:


Just install the repo file and "yum install cde"

That gives you CDE version 2.3.

I installed it on an VirtualBox image that I use for testing stuff and it looks pretty cool.

I missed out on CDE when it was the current thing; I was still using MSDOS (and DesqView) until about 1998 when I decided that DOS wasn't going to cut it in the brave new world of the Internet (though it worked great for FidoNet) and got a Windows 98 machine.  Decided I didn't like that much either so a couple of months after that I reformatted it and installed Red Hat Linux, and I've been here ever since.
