The opinions on whether TDE is better than the KDE3 which is currently
in OpenSUSE are divided. Of course this is the Trinity mailing list, so
many people here would really like to see Trinity appear in the SUSE

The significant difference between TDE and KDE3 is now that KDE3 will
have conflicts when trying to use features of Qt4 with it and TDE has
solved this. This is a significant amount of work, but it could have
caused some things to break. The final result should be tighter
integration with Qt4 however, but this is WIP.

At the same time, the KDE3 version on SUSE has many SUSE specific
patches which for now are not working with Trinity. A lot of the non-TQt
patches are shared between both TDE and the KDE3 in SUSE, so in this
regard, they should be similar for now.

In the future there will likely be both a KDE3 and TDE repository for
SUSE. As TDE matures and its ability to work with Qt4 features will
improve usability, it may become better for most people than KDE3.
