X11, Window Managers Apparently, my article a few days ago caused a bigger stir than I had anticipated, not at all unrelated to the fact that my wordings may not have been optimal. So, let me clarify things a bit.

Eugenia,

Your needs to do not represent the needs of most users. I don't believe GNOME should have a video editor, bluetooth gadgets or Jabber client installed by default. If users need these tools, then they should install it themselves. Otherwise, GNOME will become bloated with tools that are useless to majority of users. For instance I don't do video editing or bluetooth, and I see no reason why GNOME should have it installed by default. In my opinion, GNOME should come with no applications other than a web browser, text editor, and configuration/system utilities.
