Re: Reverting to GNOME for jessie's default desktop
Can you qualify that statement? Especially the "neutral" part, it is
obvious to me how a DE can be, or not be "neutral".
By "neutral" I've meant a DE without "dubious" solutions discussed in
gnome3 flame wars all over the web. I don't really think we should also
discuss it here, just because we don't really want to start another
flame war :)
I think XFCE is a better default... because I think it's not that
uncommon for people to really dislike GNOME 3.
Can you quantify that statement? What is "not that uncommon" in numbers
(as in, when does something start to be "that" uncommon)? Doesn't have
to be some sharp boundary, just a ballpark, as in > 1/10/20% of users….
Of course I have no real numbers! What I've said is just my personal
opinion, based on that I've seen a lot of flame wars about GNOME 3 on
the web, and a non-zero count of forks/derivatives of GNOME 3 all aiming
at providing a "more classic" environment (MATE, Cinnamon, Consort,
I don't want to discuss the specific usability aspects of GNOME 3, but
note there are NO such flame wars about XFCE :)
And as I've already said, I would really prefer to see a choice in
debian-installer than discuss what should be the default...
With best regards,
