Changing to Xfce was the most stupidest thing ever (along with the non default root) and I have no idea why it was necessary because the reasoning given in the blog post makes no sense as Gnome was perfectly fine with no issues but it is what it is so I want to know how can I change the DE in the latest VirtualBox image to Gnome. I know it's some commands that involve installing the Gnome DE but what are the exact steps?

Help appreciated

P.S Xfce is garbage
