Oh, please not.  Everytime I try a "desktop environment", I end up using
its menus nearly only for configuring it, and the Debian menu for doing
real work.  It's the menu I am used to, and it would really reduce my
productivity to miss it.  Not that a desktop environment increases my
productivity, anyway; but should I actually want to get used to one for
longer, it would indeed make my personal transition smoother if I can
start with the familiar Debian menu and switch to the respective desktop
environment menus gradually.
