Window Managers "The Trinity Desktop Environment (TDE) development team is pleased to announce the immediate availability of version 3.5.13.1 of the Trinity Desktop Environment. 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.

Now, first I'll start by saying that the subject wasn't meant to be a comparison between the two. I was actually equally interested in both right from the start when KDE and GNOME decided to make such a major upgrade. Problem is, it seems that the Trinity desktop is barely getting any support; almost no distributions seem to support it in any way, let alone provide packages.


There is a simple reason for that:

The Trinity project has forked Qt3 which all major distributions are getting rid off. It's absolutely naive to think that a handful developers can maintain something as large as Qt and it's even more naive to think that Debian and Co will re-adopt Qt3 just for the sake of Trinity.
