Note, this is all about defaults. If *you* like something, you can always
modify the configuration to bring it back.
That still overlooks my chief concern here... what if you need the
classic behavior during an install attempt? Are we going to be forced
to produce custom live images just so we can see what the hell is going
wrong? I love that a can make Fedora my Fedora, but this sounds like a
proposal to drive me away the first time I'm bitten by it.
Also, I'm entirely unclear on the scope. Is the affecting Fedora
Workstation (GNOME) only or all spins? The proposal says Workstation
but it doesn't explicitly exempt the others, unless I missed something.
If it's confined to the Workstation/GNOME install, I'm unaffected
because that spin already has removed so much choice that I'll never
consider it again.
