I boot up my Debian Testing XFCE machine, login to a slow startup and surprise it's F'ing gnome 3 shell.
WTF?!?!?! This is not what I had in mind for 4th of July fireworks. I hate this bullshit! Seriously, Debian testing just installed gnome without my authority!??!?! (Granted, yes i know nothing happens without authority -- updates suck sometimes)
sudo aptitude purge gnome-applets gnome-session-fallback gnome-control-center-data gnome-control-center gnome-media gnome-online-accounts gnome-bluetooth gnome-panel-data gnome-panel mousetweaks gnome-panel gnome-session gnome-shell ; sudo reboot
ahhhh much better!!!!
but now i'm aggravated...
sudo shutdown -h now
