I have encountered numerous people who have been complained (not in
particular to me, just i general) about changes to GNOME. Not being a
GNOME user myself I don't really appreciate these complaints.
However, I have observed that these complainants have generally been
told by their peers to switch to xfce and been broadly satisfied with
I haven't seen anyone in my social circles praise these changes as
good for them.
Based on this, I think there is at the very least no reason to
reverse the decision to switch the Debian default to xfce.
