Trinity Desktop Environment Now Available!
November 18, 2016
A sensible throwback
Trinity Desktop Environment R14.0.4 was released just earlier this month with support for building with GCC 6 and GStreamer 1.0 - I thought it's about time to bring this classical beast in.
What is TDE then?
Trinity Desktop Environment is a continued effort to continue the maintenance of KDE 3.5.10.
Along the way (since 2010), support for "modern" system features like PulseAudio, HAL-less hardware detection were added to this ancient desktop environment, making it largely usable on even a newer system foundation like AOSC OS.
Here below are some screenshots taken from my PowerMac G5 (PowerPC64) running TDE - which I happen to use everyday now, since the last weekend.
First greetings from Trinity.

Get the productivity going!
Install Trinity Desktop Environment is relatively easy, installing the
tdebase package should get you going with a minimal TDE installation.
A meta-package will be created soon for easier installation.
