Little Trivia: Name all primary GNOME desktop distro'a


I was compiling a list of distro's that use GNOME as their primary desktop environment. Here is what I came up with, please feel free to add:

1. Ubuntu
2. Debian
3. FoxDesktop
4. CentOS


These distro's do come with the option to "add" KDE or other DE, but here I am interested in ones that come with their legacy desktop env.

Hope this is not too silly,
regards,
Smiley

Fedora is predominantly Gnome, like any other you can add DM/WM but Gnome is the default one.

Does Debian have a default DE? It just seems to me like it doesn't focus on any particular DE or WM. Anyway to continue your GNOME list, there is also VidaLinux OS and Foresight.

as far as i am aware debian doesnt have a default desktop, thats why when you install one on it it has absolutly no stupid branding plastered all over the place like fedora and other distros.

You are right. Its a KDE desktop configured to look like MacOS.
