It wouldn't hurt to have a bit more informative landing page to
clarify that Trinity is referring to KDE3 (I assume) and not
referring to religion.  I can kind of understand the misunderstanding,
although it never occurred to me that Trinity would be a "Catholic"
desktop, or anything like that.

The Christian doctrine of the Trinity defines God as three divine
persons (Greek: ὑποστάσεις):[1] the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ),
and the Holy Spirit.
