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.

I disagree, but to each his own I guess...

I'd rather have a modern DE with a powerful shell that is modular and that I can tweak it as I please. AKA: Plasma.

Also, with KDE4 I have the advantage of relying in modern technologies such as Phonon (with VLC backends), Qt4 (soon Qt5 and Wayland). We're not stuck with legacy libraries like Qt3, which is the case for Trinity.

I know there are bugs left to be fixed, but those will be fixed in time, it's just a matter of time. Right now KDE SC 4.7.2 is very stable for me.

I'm happy to say that I don't miss anything in KDE 3.x.
