The Trinity Desktop Environment is a complete software desktop environment designed for Unix-like operating systems, intended for computer users preferring a traditional desktop model, and is free/libre software." Not the first time we mention TDE, but it's basically the continuation of KDE 3.x. There's a market for this.

Anyway, they were able to do it with GNOME 2 (MATE); why would a KDE3 fork (Trinity) be able to work as well?


Because KDE3 did not have as much traction. Redhat/Fedora and Ubuntu focused on Gnome2. It's just a question of popularity.

Ubuntu or Fedora weren't/aren't everything in the Linux world. What about OpenSUSE, Mandriva/Mageia, PCLinuxOS, Kubuntu...

Also your typical KDE application use KDE functionality and as such I suppose a new version of one may not work with an older KDE environment.

Then you could argue that you can use Qt applications instead but yeah, then why run KDE in the first place?

Maybe it's similar in the Gnome camp? I kinda have the feeling there's more "GTK" applications and that they may or may not be that tightly integrated into Gnome and even if they used some things which has been developed for Gnome 3 it may be more separated from the complete project?

But I don't really know. I don't use Gnome.
