The whole concept of a default spin is what I and a few others here object
to in the first place. There should be no one default! There should be a set
of 2 or 3 primary spins (GNOME, KDE and possibly some third option, probably
something lightweight and/or netbook-oriented) to choose from as equal
(And FWIW, I really don't see why the Fedora Project insists on abusing the
word "Desktop" to mean "GNOME".)
