Although KDE and GNOME fill pretty much the same niche while XFCE aims for a
slightly different goal....

Having things in Core means you don't have to download if you can buy the
CDs.  XFCE is targetted at people with older hardware.  Are they more likely
to be highly technical people rescuing older hardware and therefore going to
have high speed access or poor and therefore more likely to be on dialup?
