True, although our reasons for not providing GNOME are based on a
decision to provide a single environment for the schools.
Additionally, we plan on harvesting data from the journals to look for
some semblance of use patterns. These don't get captured on the GNOME
side via the Journal.

I guess we'll remove the GNOME access icon and go from there.
