HulaHoop added a comment to T71: Show desktop clock in local time; keep system in UTC.

I think hiding the clock is a bad idea as a user may want to manually run sdwdate to adjust it if it's out of whack before initiating internet traffic. (This is on non-Qubes versions lacking auto time adjust)

It is still unclear to me if there is any other known and unknown ways to detect the fonts installed in Whonix by other applications.

Whonix is only a small piece in the bigger picture of Qubes internationalization, which would then follow how it is implemented for Debian templates.

Please educate me if I am wrong. The reason I draw this conclusion is because when doing the fingerprint test on ip-check.info , there is a section called "Do you see strange symbols here? If yes, your fonts are readable!"

Another disadvantage for a)  and b):
Tor Browser can reveal what fonts have been installed in the system when JavaScript is enabled, which can be used as an effective fingerprint against users.

Patrick added a comment to T467: Migration to Gnome-Shell / port to GNOME-ish applications.

Since changing from kde to gnome is not so simple, since many packages have to be changed (kde vs gnome, jessie vs stretch), I think it's best to delay this change and implement it when porting Whonix to Debian version 9 codename Stretch.

Patrick lowered the priority of T75: add download speed indicator to the download window of Tor Browser download GUI (tb-updater) from Normal to Wishlist.

Lowering priority, because Tor Browser now has it's own internal updater and because tb-updater has been degraded to being a downloader only.

I don't think we should encourage users to set time zones because it can give away their geo location both for an adversary in the VM and for timestamp leaks by applications in the WS.

That is somewhat T72, which you partially already implemented in "whonix-setup-wizard locale_settings". When we start that (using xinit) (perhaps in Whonix 11?), then system language gets set. tb-updater could use the same language. The question is, how could tb-updater figure out what was set in KDE (or..)?
