I fully agree. It doesn't matter how do you have to pay for CD's or DVD's for the default DE. The user will choose the iso which they need. If we are really worried about the iso and people with a bad connection then we should split the LXDE and Xfce iso.
I stick to it:
* Debian doesn't need a default desktop,
* CD1 should be renamed similar to KDE, Xfce/LXDE CD isos and maybe a Mate iso would be great and * the option to choose a DE should be hidden in the advanced options for netisos.
