  I think polling the users might be interesting - indeed a tablet GUI
is great to have and I'm all for it ... for tablets .. not the default,
since most, if not all, fedora users have laptops, servers, or desktops.
Servers need a robust non-GUI so not important for DE question.

  I'd pick KDE - many folks like XFCE ..  KDE is a little more modern
and its quite configurable (as is XFCE), which is something most who are
responsible for managing computers strongly favor.

  I suggest we switch the Gnome shell to a tablet spin - though Android
may be a tough competitor if RH hopes to commercialize it.
