I believe Debian uses as default whatever is most often installed. Maybe we
should figure out a way to do the same. Then we wouldn't need to discuss, and
noone could claim it was a political statement.

Debian's "Debian on the Desktop" page is instructive here, assuming
it's still up to date. :-)

http://www.debian.org/devel/debian-desktop/

The first tenet:

"Recognizing that both GNOME and KDE as well as many Desktop
frameworks like GNUstep, GTK, Qt and others exist, we will support the
use of them, and make sure they work well on Debian. KDE and GNOME are
the primary choices for a default environment for the end user.
Supporting other desktop environments such as XFCE would be nice as
well, depending on developer time and space constraints."

Who knew that Debian and openSUSE had so much in common?

Then reading further it asks for testing of the "Desktop Default
Environment" task (**or kde-desktop task) which suggests it's GNOME --
but this is also for Woody, so, who knows what it is these days?

Best,

Zonker
