why do you think it's a) best for it to become the default and
Because I consider GNOME
* fully featured: It offers everything a user needs and has a
large ecosystem of applications you can install if you really
miss something. When it comes to features, only KDE can compete
* simple to use: The default user experience is straight forward.
KDE offers more configuration option, but configuration is ten
* tightly integrated: GNOME developers are trying to design a user
experience, that is not only a desktop but a whole system.
And last but not least we need manpower for it's development and
maintenance. And this is where no other desktop can beat GNOME.
b) we continue to have a single default to begin with?
The word "default" implies that we need to make a choice and it there
can only be a single default. "The Fedora workstation" is supposed to be
a unique, consistent user experience.
For me the discussion is not if we need a default or not, I think we hav
ea consensus in the working group. And I don't care if the default is
GNOME or something else, I care about having integrating all desktops
into Fedora without getting in each others way.
