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.

And call the spin, "the bitter pill."

That's an interesting idea, but this isn't the right place for it. I
know that there are several lists for the Fedora devs, and one of them
would probably be more appropriate because you'd be writing to people
who actually have some control over that.

Personally, I'd like to see Fedora move to XFCE for two reasons: I use
it and, more important, I think it's about time there was a major distro
built around it.
