I am sure that we could have a great competition for finding potential users with even crappier connectivity and even more obsolete computers, and somebody would improve the record every time!
If the xfce iso didn't exist, people in these situtations would not be able to install a usable Debian system.
I see a solution that would satisfy everybody: whoever is interested in supporting this kind of situations could build CD images appropriate for them, and everybody else who does not live in the worst connected parts of the third world can continue using a modern desktop as usual.

Wow. So the people who do not have many resources should either (a) use what limited resources they have on making an ISO image or (b) screw off because "first world" people have better things to do.

I bet you also think that those people in developing nations should learn your language (even though their education is extremely limited as is), while those who have enough luck to live in a country with a great education system have no responsibility to use that education to learn another language.

I think Debian's official ISO should appeal to as many people as possible.

While GNOME has many qualities that make it appeal to the blind or non-english speaking, it is one of the biggest DE's, and that makes it less accesible to poorer people.
