Whereas you are trying to increase the number of users that "choose"
GNOME by not preselecting anything and having "GNOME" first? This issue
still goes both ways.

And you want to put KDE first, instead of the standard practice of using
alphabetical order.

Get real. You don't really believe that BS.

Instead of fair competition, you are creating prewriten votes with the
vote you want.

I'm afraid I don't comprehend what this sentence is supposed to mean.

But, again, you argue with "fair", yet you are fine with GNOME having
special priviledges that others don't have.

What special privileges? I don't see any.

How about being listed first in the desktop selection screen despite being
used only by a small minority.

Don't you know your history? You sound like the current situation was always
so. The reality is that some invisible monster forced the current messy
situation upon us, against the wishes of the vast majority of the community,
when historically KDE was the default.

And 3-4 years later, the only thing that has been achieved is chasing away a
lot of KDE users - without attracting a great many GNOME users.

If this horrible injustice was corrected it might also relieve some of the
animosity openSUSE KDE users feel against GNOME users - apart from all the
other benefits to the project of coming correct.
