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.

Simple things like if you single click it does not only select but you get the "pushed" animation (and again on the second click) making an extra delay and a visual distraction. There are a good many details like this all throughout kde4. The kde4 devs are too worried about the larger brush strokes that they rush past all the little details that make a DE enjoyable. Sure I could submit my reports to the stack and hope that they try and fix these (assuming they consider them broken) but there is already a DE (kde3) that does everything I want without all the headache. What sane person would choose otherwise?

KDE4 doesn't offer me anything at all that would give me reason to use it over kde3 except "future support" and now trinity offers that. So I would rather use the wheel that works than the one that they are trying to make work.
