On synaptic.... on the confirmation screen says:
to be removed => ubuntu-desktop
to be installed => xubuntu-desktop
I didn't want to take the risk! ;-)
Another example: I wanted to remove totem but, synaptic says:
to be removed => gnome
Wow! that's too much for me, so I decided to keep totem! ;-)
PS: Why "angrykeyboarder"? Do you chew keyboard like me? ;-)
They don't last too long with me!
