<p>The Trinity Desktop Environment (TDE) project is a computer desktop environment for Unix-like operating systems
with a primary goal of retaining the function and form of traditional desktop computers.</p>
<h2>Project Goals</h2>
<P>We seek to provide a traditional desktop environment which is . . .
<li>Flexible and highly customizable.</li>
<li>Visually appealing.</li>
<li>Equipped with a suitable collection of desktop effects that remain compatible with older hardware.</li>
<li>Responsive on older hardware, while also being compatible with newer hardware.</li>
<li>Compatible with, but not requiring, 3D acceleration.</li>
<li>Compatible with <a href=""></a> and
<a href="">Linux file system hierarchy</a>
<li>Compatible with other desktop environments.</li>
<li>Capable of offering maximal <a href="">HCI
(Human-Computer Interaction)</a> efficiency in a mouse/keyboard environment.</li>
<h2>Major Features</h2>
<li>Traditional panel, task bar, task manager, quick launch.</li>
<li>A repository of TDE compatible software applications, including several text editors, a file manager,
image viewers, office apps, an archive manager, and the original and improved classic Amarok music player.
<A HREF="applications.php">Full list of applications</A></li>
<li>Optional <a href="">Secure Attention
Key</a> to further secure the login and desktop lock dialogs.</li>
<li>A TDE-specific DBUS notification client for improved integration with
common applications such as Firefox and NetworkManager (with no need for HAL).</li>
<li>Plus much more! <A HREF="features.php">Full list of features</A>
<p>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
<p>The TDE project was founded by Timothy Pearson. Timothy
is an experienced and skilled software developer and was the KDE 3.x coordinator
of previous Kubuntu releases.</p>
