Debian Now Defaults To Xfce Desktop

[Phoronix] Debian Now Defaults To Xfce Desktop: "In a commit made for Debian's forthcoming 7.0 Wheezy release, Xfce is now the default desktop choice.

The default desktop task has been changed from GNOME to Xfce within the Tasksel Git. While one might assume the change is due to the criticism expressed by many GNOME users since the 3.x series -- with some saying it's losing its relevance on the Linux desktop -- the main reason expressed within the Git commit comes down to Xfce being able to fit entirely on the first Debian CD. "

Esta á uma mudança muito interessante numa distribuição que é fundamental. O Gnome ultimamente tem recebido muitas críticas por causa das mudanças aceleradas e o XFCE é sem dúvida um desktop muito bom e rápido. Talvez seja altura de voltar a utilizar Debian! :)
