ParcPlace (Pure Software?) is making freely available its popular
ObjectBuilder and Object Interface (OI) products for the Linux operating
system.  ObjectBuilder is a GUI builder written completely in C++, that
enables UNIX C++ developers to apply the principles of object-orientation to
the development of user interfaces. OI, a C++ class library, provides the
toolkit foundation for ObjectBuilder. OI implements the look-and-feel of both
Motif 1.2 and OPEN LOOK. OI is built directly on top of Xlib and is
unencumbered by runtime royalties to any party.  ObjectBuilder and OI are
very extensible, actively facilitating the use of subclassing to create new,
reusable, user interface components.  Sources are on tsx-11.mit.edu in
/pub/linux/packages/OI and available from ParcPlace (+1 408 481 9090).
