Severity: serious

debian does NOT have a default desktop. i can't find the written
details for it though.

however there is:

i would prefer separate entries:

since all of the gui toolkits have rather different feel and look,
that makes them not perfect to work together.

rename "default desktop" to "gnome and kde" or whatever

other nice to have:
before starting to install "Default Desktop" check if destination
has enough free space.

thank you

I realize that many people don't like it, but until there is a clear
winner in the GNOME vs KDE wars or a consensus in Debian to make one or
the other the only desktop installed by the desktop task, or a third
more viable candidate, both will continue to be installed, and there
will continue to be only one task, called "desktop", whose description
explains that it includes both.
