August 2017 Update
This is outdated. Posted on 2017.08.24
We’ve been quiet over the last few months while evaluating the future of Trenta OS and Trenta.io. We have landed on a decision that we believe is the only option at this time.
In April of this year, we paused the release schedule of Trenta OS to reevaluate our strengths and weaknesses to determine the future of our organization. We reflected on our goal — to bring a beautiful and premium feeling operating system into the hands of everyone and to enable content creators to utilize a great open alternative to the standards set by the industry. We believe we were on the right track. The Trenta.io community, the fans and their love for Trenta OS and Rainier UI enabled us to press on. We knew we didn’t have a finished project by any means, but reaching nearly 100,000 downloads during the Trenta OS alpha let us know we were onto something special. Unfortunately, limited time and resources lead to countless roadblocks during this last year.
That’s why today we are announcing, with heavy hearts, the indefinite end of Trenta OS.
Despite Trenta OS releases being halted, Trenta.io will continue the development of Rainier UI. These future releases will be geared at Ubuntu and eventually expand to other Linux distributions. Additionally, through a recent partnership we plan to help bring Rainier UI to a new platform, though we are not ready to make any announcements at this time.
We want to thank our fans, old and new, for sticking with us and your continuous support during this time. We are excited to share what the future brings with you.
The Trenta.io Team
