Why does it look EXACTLY like Trello?

To me it looks much more like Zenkit

Not sure I get you? Do you mean the design or the feature?

The design shown on the README of the repo. don't you agree it does look "similar" to Trello, or you don't see the similarity..?

I don't see the similarity except the task board section which is similar for all kanban type boards, other then that I don't find much similarity. All the section are reviewed by several designer in different forums and so far nobody has said anything like that.

I am extremely curious about the motivation to spend incredible amount of time developing a tool that looks and does what Trello do for many years.

is the motivation purely business, to try catching a chunk of the same Trello user-base, or is it a try to make yet another task-board app that is believed by its created to be superior to the others already exist in the market.

I'm trying to understand the mindset of a developer starting such a gigantic project, and what does this developer hopes to achieve?

Please answer, if you may, in a way which is emotionally detached way, not to take the discussion to an unproductive path. Thanks
