	True. For me, though, I wanted Unity gone. So after I installed the 
gnome meta, I went through and yanked out all that I could of Unity. 
Others may want one of those DEs without the Ubuntu customizations 
added. That's where my suggestion came from.
	Either way, the usual answer is "it depends on what your end-game 
is...", right?

	Next time, though, I may start with installing fresh from a Lubuntu or 
Xubuntu disc, and add Gnome on top of that.
