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 formerly a continuation of KDE 3. Now its own desktop
environment project, it continues to gain features, fix existing bugs, and
provide a stable desktop to all.
The TDE project was founded by and is still led by Timothy Pearson.
Timothy is an experienced and skilled software developer and was the KDE
3.x coordinator of previous Kubuntu releases.
Note: The correct reference to the Trinity Desktop Environment is
"Trinity" or "TDE"; not "KDE3", "Trinity KDE3", "KDE3 Trinity", "KDE3
(Trinity)", or "Trinity (KDE3)". The Trinity Desktop Environment project
is not a continuation of KDE 3.5 by KDE e.V., which no longer supports the
KDE 3 series. Trinity is an independent fork using a separate developer
