the closest thing to ``official'' that we have is an ISO on an FTP site
(or rsync site). if your ISO matches that one, then you can sell it as
Official. otherwise, you don't get to say Official. we do not ourselves
directly sell any CD's. unless perhaps you corner one of us at a trade
show . . .

that would be the members of Debian, who agree to everything by vote.
the voting body is international is scope and scale.

Window Maker is the default window manager if you install X. if you have
to call it a desktop, i suppose you could call it GNUstep.
