Hi all,

This again boils down on what Xubuntu is here for. If we want lightweight
OS, then slim is the way to go. If we want all the blitz and bling and be a
ubuntu (gnome) copy with xfce, use gdm.

I really thing Xubuntu should define it's place in the OS market. Are we
striving for low memory machines or not?

If not, why is abiword and gnumeric in the default install instead of full
openoffice? If we are, slim is a good option to reduce the bloat.

After Xubuntu has defined where it wants to fit in, we can start
make choices based on that.
