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.

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

That dream died years ago.

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.

It's not that people are moving from Linux to Windows or Mac, it's that Linux never offered a compelling reason to move to it and stay.
