Having used both, ximian gnome is slightly more polished and the woody
gnome.  Ximian gnome was made for potato.  Thus it will not install
cleanly on a woody system.  IMHO using ximian gnome on a potato system
was definately worth it because potato gnome was just so bad, but on a
woody system, the standard gnome packages are great and you really would
no notice the difference.  I would just install the debian gnome
packages if you are using woody.  I hope I answered your question.
