The thing I like the most in Trinity is that it is both easy to use and
easily configurable: for example I have custom shortcuts that enable
me to use some key combinations I learnt in other DEs (for example,
Xfce and Compiz's Ctrl-Alt-Left/Right to change virtual desktops). It
enables me to use almost the same shortcuts with Trinity, KDE4 and Xfce.
Also, I like the fact that the applications are deeply integrated and
behave the same.
I also enjoy the great reactivity of Trinity, but anyway my hardware is
powerful enough to make anything reactive (SSD, 6G RAM).
For the work part, I'm a graduate student in theoretical CS (4th year
of university; in France the equivalent of the Bachelor's, which we call
Licence, takes 3 years to obtain).

-The themes provided by default. Everyone has their tastes, and mine
don't like any KDE3/Trinity's included Qt3 style/icon theme. Now, with
Trinity I use Polyester (that I compiled from the kde-look tarballs)
and the Crystal Project icons, with a 100% transparent panel. I like
Domino too.
-Konqueror 3.5.13, which is the only navigator which integrates well to
Trinity, doesn't support modern CSS.
