Ya.. as soon as CS is out, we'll have an announcement with lots of details
on all of the features and what's included... You'll have to wait till
then *grin*

Ya.. KDE & GNOME are both included..
Our X setup in CS is less then perfect. For example, due to some glibc
issues Xconfigurator is not run during installation.. this means that your
system won't be configured for X until you get into your system, install
Xconfigurator and run it. This is easy, but in the future the installer
will take care of this for you.
