	You can obtain either OSF/Motif source or binaries from a number of 
vendors. 
	Motif 1.2.5 source is now available; it is based on X11R5. Motif 2.0 is
also available; it, too, is based on X11R5.
	Motif 1.1 is based on the R4.18 Intrinsics and is finished [7/92] at 
1.1.5.
	A conformant Motif implementation not based on OSF-derived source is
being developed by fox@crisp.demon.co.uk (Paul Fox).
	An OSF/Motif source license must be obtained from OSF before source can
be obtained from the Open Software Foundation or any value-added vendor for
any version. Call the Direct Channels Desk at OSF at 617-621-7300 for ordering 
information (direct@osf.org).

	Various hardware vendors produce developer's toolkits of binaries, 
header files, and documentation; check your hardware vendor, particularly if
that vendor is an OSF member. 
	In addition, independent binary vendors produce Motif toolkits for
machines for which Motif is not supported by a vendor; the kits include varied 
levels of bug-fixing and support for shared libraries and are based on widely
divergent version of Motif:
