Bug#860447: Acknowledgement (installation-reports: successful (but operator confusion concerning desktop software installation options))
In fairness, in section 220.127.116.11 of the installation guide, it does say
"By default, debian-installer installs the Gnome desktop environment."
So my "no useful information" claim is an overstatement. But the way
the choices are displayed to the user in the selection menu is still
counterintuitive. (And I do realize I'm probably a member of a small
subset of users who'd want a window manager and not a full-fledged
desktop by default.)
