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.

KDE is not the problem, it's the people

I wonder if people sometimes forget this is a free software project.

Why instead of complaining we don't do something positive and fix the bugs that bothers us so much?

After all, this is a FOSS project and we as users should also do our part in free software and contribute improvements instead of complaining and being demanding.

So please people, if you can't code at least spend some time and try to find bugs, reproduce them, and report useful bugs to the developers, or learn some C++/Qt and start contributing. Am I asking too much?

If the problem was a few of the details then that is a viable solution, however when the entire project is the flaw (and with kde 4.x that is the case for many of us) then the only solution is a different DE. Being a huge fan of kde 3, this makes Trinity an ideal solution to the kde4 problem that we face.

Could you please elaborate on what you don't like about the current KDE SC 4.7.2?

I know there are still some crashes that needs to be fixed, but other than that it's pretty stable. I know that because I'm currently on KDE 4.7.2 and I had Amarok crash a few times when I was using it.

And if you set "Folder View" as a desktop and revert back to the classic menu, you pretty much have the same DE that you had in KDE 3.x.

What exactly you don't like?
