|     switch default desktop task to xfce
|     This ensures that the desktop will fit on CD#1, which gnome currently does not.
|     There may be other reasons to prefer xfce as the default as well, but that
|     is a complex and subjective topic. Unfortunatly, Debian does not have a
|     well-defined procedure for making such choices, though it certianly has
|     well-defined procedures for reviewing them. So, I've decided to be bold,
|     and continue the tradition of making an arbitrary desktop selection for
|     Debian in tasksel.
