Debian switches back to Gnome as default desktop environment

Debian switched to Xfce as the default desktop environment back in November 2013. But that didn’t last long because a few days ago, Debian restored GNOME as the default desktop, based on preliminary results from the Debian Desktop Requalification for Jessie.

According to Joey Hess, the Debian developer who performed this change, the main reasons for Debian switching back to GNOME as the default desktop are related to accessibility and systemd integration.
