Debian Changes Default Desktop From GNOME To Xfce

Anonymous Coward writes | about 2 years ago

Debian 1

An anonymous reader writes "The default desktop within Debian 7.0 "Wheezy" has changed from GNOME to Xfce. GNOME, KDE, and LXDE will continue to be available, but the decision was made to default to Xfce. The reported reasoning comes down to size constraints in fitting GNOME on a single CD."

Really? Doesn't Debian use a netinstall? (1)

"There may be other reasons to prefer xfce as the default as well, but that is a complex and subjective topic."

Yeah, I agree. Gnome 3 is terrible.
