You would also have to make it so that the "GNOME desktop" group is
not checked by default when installing with a DVD (change in comps.xml
if I'm not mistaken)

But wait, that means that a new user without any skill will have no
desktop installed if he doesn't check this box himself. I'm not sure
the effect on them will be positive ;)

IMHO, we need to have a checked checkbox bu default in installation,
which means we need to choose a desktop environment and make it the

That doesn't mean we treat other desktop environments as if they were
second class citizens, but that's not the point you are raising here.
