  Is your point that perhaps Fedora community should evaluate and
choose it's default DE?

  I suppose that is what Ubuntu is doing, and they are choosing to move
away from gnome shell, tho stay with gnome.

  How could this be done in Fedora anyway? Its one thing to stay the
course and use gnome shell, its another to change it. Does the mechanism
even exist ? Who could in fact change the default DE in Fedora ? Is that
a FESCO thing or something else ?
