KDE Trinity is good


I'm sampling KDE Trinity right now, because I don't like the KDE 4 desktop but recently learned about Trinity as an alternative that maintains the look and feel of KDE 3.5.

I like Trinity. It obviously is indeed a continuation of 3.5, with the slight changes in appearance that you would expect from an updated version. I'm not going to do more than sample it yet, because apt-get (using Synaptic) won't let me uninstall unneeded Trinity software (toys, screensavers, etc.) without uninstalling the core, and I take that to mean the packages need more work.
I don't really know what to say about it technically (and if I knew, I probably wouldn't understand what I was trying to say); but clearly, if you don't like KDE 4 (and/or you just had no interest in abandoning KDE 3.5 for any other desktop software--that's me), Trinity is the future.

Does anyone know of a list of distros that use Trinity by default? I know it's a very short list at present, in fact the only one I know of is Porteus (www.porteus.org). It looks very nice, but it's set up to run only as a live CD. I'd like to find a good full-blown distro that's built from the ground up with Trinity.

I haven't heard of any such distros, or more generally, any indications that Trinity isn't still experimental.

Not sure, but I heard of "Pardus Corporate 2" too.

I'm sure there's something on Suse Studio.

Anyone who reads this thread should know: I have since retracted that opinion. I now think KDE Trinity is full of small glitches and flaws, and I do not recommend it.

Trinity can be installed on a minimal install of debian, ubuntu, redhat, fedora, mageia, mandriva and opensuse. Details can found at the following link:
http://www.trinitydesktop.org/

Searching distowatch.com for trinity desktop distributions produces only Exe GNU/Linux.
http://distrowatch.com/table.php?distribution=exe
http://exegnulinux.net/

But now there are many lightweight desktop environments available which are better supported.
