The MOTIF Toolkit

X allows extensions to the Xt Intrinsics toolkit.

Many software houses have developed custom features that make the GUI's appearance attractive, easy to use and easy to develop.

MOTIF is one such toolkit.

It was developed by the Open Software Foundation (OSF) and the full name of MOTIF is in fact OSF/MOTIF.

The third party toolkits usually supply a special client called the window manager.
