Gnome The future of GNOME - an interesting subject. GNOME 3 has been out and about for a while, and it hasn't exactly been a smashing success. One of the efforts to take GNOME to the next level is what the team refers to as GNOME OS - but in reality, it's a set of improvements to GNOME that are just as interesting to GNOME-the-desktop-environment.

That's just the excuse they are using to avoid a huge political fight among the Debian devs.

Firstly, Debian has an Install CD1 (with optional 73 extra ones)" or install DVD1 (with 11) or Blu-ray.

But I don't know anyone who installs it that way. Most people use the Netinst. In which case, I don't know if they changed that or not. It looks like the particular patch for changing 'tasksel' package to install XFCE by default has not been integrated into either the Wheezy or Sid package.

So (at least for now) the default for the Net install is still Gnome-shell. This doesn't even matter anyhow, since you can install whichever you wish by simply doing 'desktop=xxx' when you launch the installer from the netinst.
