List of Distro's that come with Gnome as Default WM?


I am trying to find out which Linux Distro's come with Gnome by default, as Gnome seems to work best on my PC, and it's easy to work with.
I know most have Gnome anyway-but are there distro's that favor Gnome WM over KDE/XFCE?
Of course I know about Ubuntu....

Also, Gnome can be installed on any distro.

Fedora uses Gnome as the default WM. As far as I know this has been the case on all Fedora releases so far.

Distributions starting with 'G' sometimes are efforts to make a Gnome-default variant of an existing distribution that otherwise favors some other WM. Gnoppix is an example for such an attempt of replacing Knoppix/KDE with a Knoppix/Gnome setup. Most distribution allow a choice for WM's, so creating a new distro for such a plain reason is overkill, IMHO.

distrowatch is the only place I know that would have this data. Have you looked there?
