just out of curiousity, has anyone tried trinity project ?
http://trinity.pearsoncomputing.net/ (kde 3.5)

i read this post today on debian planet,
http://yoush.homelinux.org:8079/tech/tr ... kde3-alive
and it made me look around a bit.

it'd be nice to be back to kde3 (especially once gnome3 hits the repos), but i dont think support for it will be up to date.

any reviews from people using it, would be nice.

Personally I guess that it is better to move on and leave behind what is gone.
I have seen similar opinions on automobiles.

Time would have no meaning if changes did not take place.

Have a nice day.

what does this have to do with gnome3?
and no, trinity does not have many chances to stay alive, given its a one-man-show more less.

Quite a few "one-man-show" distros have survived recent times. Some have even thrived.

CrunchBang is a good example. Last I checked, it placed higher than aptosid on the distrowatch charts (I'm not saying it's better, just more downloaded)

How does distrowatch measure this? I only ever go there to check out some trends (and that's really rarely) but I really don't take that data seriously. They sure didn't count my systems. Maybe of some newbie linux users but for them I wouldn't even suggest what I use.

As for Trinity, good luck to that project but I no longer have interest in KDE3. I did use it up until recently (I waited until KDE4.4 I think before I finally upgraded) so I can understand them but as time passes, KDE4 should get better and better, forcing maybe even Trinity creators to rethink where their efforts are spent.

sure. but kde3 is no distro. it will get really hard to maintain over time, given it will never make it into debian.
