At first glance, it looks nice. But I have two comments:

1) It seemed to me strange logo 'T' rotated to vertical. At first I wondered 
if it would be better to leave it unrotated. Then I realized another thing: 
There is too much icons. Icons on the menu, icon in the new sidebar image, 
but also the icon on the kicker button from which the menu is opened. All 
icons are together in one small area.

2) TDE is an acronym Trinity Desktop Environment. Trinity TDE is therefore as 
Trinity Trinity Desktop Environment. It is a bit odd? But I have no idea how 
to improve it. Let alone TDE is not good. Give dash between Trinity and TDE - 
it would probably be too weird. Leave alone Trinity (as is now)?
