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.

ARCH + OPENBOX IS ALL YOU NEED

When will people stop chasing the bull and just use
Arch Linux with Openbox and tint panel. It is extremely
fast and quite pretty as well.

Who cares about KDE4 or GNOME3, I hate change personally. Just like when I got used to Windows 95/98 they changed where everything is in Windows XP. Then got used to Windows XP and in Vista/7 of a turd, they change everything again. Who cares?!? I want something stable, fast, useable, and not have to relearn an OS or DE every 2 years.

Do yourself a favor guys, download Arch Linux and install Openbox. My system boots in 10 seconds, from when I turn on the power on, until I get a fully working environment with Openbox and tint panel, and a variety of services running. That is perfection to me. Shutdowns are also instant, within a few seconds my system is off.

My system boots so fast, that even my wifi adapter takes a few seconds after Openbox has loaded to connect to the router to browse the internet.
