Maybe I'm not religious enough? (:P) A little add-on, sice I'm following (and participating) in discussion on authors blog. It's author's comment in response of mine in which I explained that trinity is reference to kde version 3. "I didn't notice anything at first about the name either. But I recently heard from a friend of mine who sets up computers for people; that some Rabbi hired him to setup his computer with a free operating system and office suite. He offered him a choice of desktops and showed them off, and when he mentioned Trinity Desktop, the Rabbi said no way was he sticking a Christian desktop on his computer. The name is hurting potential market share."
