From what I’ve been able to read between the lines on the TrueOS blog, the existence of Trident signals that TrueOS is backing away from Lumina. Not completely, not in the sense of “canning” it, but making what once looked like the flagship product into an optional afterthought.
OK, maybe that’s a good idea, I don’t know.
I’ve ended up abandoning TrueOS because the TrueOS team is continually switching focus, starting new projects before the previous project even gets off the ground. There’s a major difference between “cutting edge” and “no project ever approaches its intended state of function, it’s always pushed aside before that can happen”.
Is there a marketing push to always have an undeveloped project with a new name, to dangle in front of investors or something? I don’t understand.
If someone asks me what TrueOS is, I have to say “I’m not sure, let me check, I thought I knew last week”.
