I'd see no problem with a GnomeWM that would be very well intigrated as
long as Enlightenment (or something else) could be turned on in its place.
I for one don't particularly mind the distinction between WM and Gnome,
but I can see how it could be confusing for a newbie. if a highly
integrated WM were the default it would be great. Just leave choice.
