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.

Don't immediately write something of as bullshit just because it does not apply to you.

I have the same experience as Thom with regards to KDE 4.x Let me start by saying that want to love KDE. I install each minor version in order to see how it progresses. Always I hope it can become my mane DE.

That said on my old with a single core 1.8GHz cpu (don't know which one any more) 4GB RAM and a Nvidia GeForce GT240 KDE performance is very sluggish. Both with Nvidia's own drivers as Nouveau's, tested under both Arch and Kubuntu. Ditto for my girlfriends pc with about the same specs.

Now I bought a new pc --with the soul purpose of playing Deus Ex 3 ;) -- but I kept my old videocard. KDE performance became very good. I have nothing to complain in that department. But the stability of the system is still horrible, I mean Windows ME horrible. After a weak I could not bare it any more and installed Gnome 3 (...which I did not like so I installed Fluxbox ;) )

Again, I think, feature-wise, KDE is great and the people working on it are great to. I really like to use it. But it still doesn't work for me, if it works for you, great, I envy you. If it works for the majority of people (as it appears to do), even better! But don't write of people telling otherwise for telling bullshit, or blaming the hardware. This machine runs other DE (like Gnome 3), modern games and much more complex software without any problem.

And why, why would anybody tell bullshit(lie) about it, what is to gain?
