What is Trinity Desktop Environment (TDE)?
The TDE project began as a continuation of the K Desktop Environment (KDE) version 3. The name Trinity was chosen partly because the word means "three" and TDE was a continuation of KDE 3. TDE now is its own computer desktop environment project.
The Trinity Desktop Environment wants to provide a traditional desktop environment which is
-- Flexible and highly customizable. -- Visually appealing. -- Equipped with a suitable collection of desktop effects that remain compatible with older hardware. -- Responsive on older hardware, while also being compatible with newer hardware. -- Compatible with, but not requiring, 3D acceleration. -- Compatible with freedesktop.org and Linux file system hierarchy standards. -- Compatible with other desktop environments. -- Capable of offering maximal HCI (Human-Computer Interaction) efficiency in a mouse/keyboard environment.
