As for why it was made on Ark. Currently trinity doesn't work well on
my primary machines. I use extremely complicated machines and it seems
to mess up most distros. Ark & vector are the first and currently
still the only distros that can run everything perfectly. No offense
to anyone, these machines are old school, new tech monsters.

Also, it was only intended as a mock up example. I expected it would
be tweaked, refined, adapted etc to fit each distros that have adopted
Trinity (which is growing everyday w00t).

I hope that answers everything and I hope its useful.
