Debian's default desktop is Gnome.  So far, I haven't found anything I
can't do via some Gnome GUI in terms of your routine administration
tasks that isn't either happening automagically thanks to cron or
anacron regardless of DE or made point-and-drool in Gnome.  That being
said, it's usually easier and faster to bust out the text editor in
either distribution; people who insist that GUIs are always the best
tool for the job are just psyching themselves out in most cases.
