Experience says, desktop environment (DE) and text editor preference
discussions can easily shift into religious debates. Frankly I haven't
tried Gnome3, but I always found Gnome2 so counter-intuitive that I
doubt I will ever bother installing Gnome3.

I have a very subjective tendency towards using Qt based environments,
perhaps because I code in Qt. I will take a look at what you proposed,
as it seems interesting.

On the other hand, I have a feeling that whoever spends the most
effort to build the spin, gets the choose the default DE. At least
this is the way things usually go in the free software world.
