1-None of the top ten Linux distros from Distrowatch are there either - no Mint,
no Fedora, no Ubuntu, no openSUSE, no Manjaro, etc. Trinity certainly isn't
mentioned anywhere on that page. Why is being on that very limited list (of
distros I never even heard of) important to you?

2-I was recommending Knoppix as a tool suitable for anyone wishing to run
gparted to repartition an existing installation, as well as other purposes
dictating a live rather than installed OS. Though it can be installed, that's
not how I use it.

3-Knoppix not being on that list could be because of special software that
enables its use by blind persons. It is nevertheless a free download, just like
Debian, AntiX, Neon and many many more than the 12 that are on that list.

4-Being Debian based, and installable, Trinity should be usable on a HD
installation of it without special effort.
