KDE Disappointed with KDE 4's performance and other shortcomings, Timothy Pearson continued KDE 3.5 development under the name Trinity. Today the first third major update of the Trinity Desktop Environment is released, providing an alternative upgrade path for KDE users who do not feel comfortable with KDE 4.

What's going on with the Linux Desktop?

It seems that the last releases of the most important DEs in the Linux world (KDE and Gnome) had a lot of criticism. These includes Unity.

I have the impression that the majority of users don't like the new directions taken by those DE and are seeking for alternatives.

Unfortunately all the FLOSS alternatives provides a second class desktop experience (or, at least, this is what I feel) and people are moving to OSX and Windows.

I believe that those new DEs are putting a tomb stone on the Linux Desktop.
